Students from a Suffolk independent school have performed a production tackling race, religion and gender.
The Finborough School students have been at the Theatre Royal in Bury St Edmunds this week for their version of the Jason Robert Brown work 13.
The show tells the story of Evan Goldman, who grapples with his parents’ divorce, prepares for his impending Bar Mitzvah and navigates the complicated social circles of a new school.
Georgie Ross, head of performing arts at the school, near Stowmarket, said: “A school production should both educate and entertain.
“13 is an uplifting, hilarious show, with a very important message about life, love and friendship, which addresses the need to accept other people from all walks of life regardless of religious, cultural or gender differences.”
