Truro School Drama perform three terrific productions

On 17 and 19 June, Truro School Drama performed three terrific productions in the Burrell Theatre: Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations, The Promise and The Government Inspector.

Ernie’s Incredible Illucinations, written by Alan Ayckbourn, is a bright comedy by the famous English comic playwright about the extraordinary powers of Ernie Fraser, a dreamer with a difference. Ernie has a vivid imagination; and his thoughts have the disconcerting habit of turning into reality.

The Promise is an ancient Balinese tale looking at ideas around integrity, self-belief and perseverance and how we can blossom if we are true to ourselves. A young girl playfully agrees to marry a dashing prince but, when she later becomes engaged to a man she truly loves, she sets off on a long journey to ask the prince if she is still bound to him.

The Government Inspector by Nikolai Gogol tells how panic spreads in a corrupt town council when they learn a government inspector is on the way.
