The students of BINUS SCHOOL Simprug have done it again! The class of 2024 have put on an original play that has left audiences in awe. The play, written and directed by the students themselves, showcased their creativity and talent in a production that is truly a must-see.
The play, titled “THE RAVEN”, came from Edgar Allan Poe’s poem of the same name. The poem was written in the Victorian era, in 1845, which also happens to be the same era when The Raven (the play) takes place. The poem talks about the narrator’s descent into madness after losing his lover, which reflects a lot of the themes in the play: loss, insanity, and grief. The plot was masterfully crafted, with twists and turns that kept the audience engaged and on the edge of their seats. The students’ acting skills were equally impressive, with each actor bringing their own unique style and personality to their role. The production is a true testament to the dedication and hard work of the students and their teachers, who had been preparing this school play since September 2022 and everyone involved in this school play spent countless hours rehearsing and perfecting every detail of the play.
The play has received rave reviews from audience members, with many expressing their admiration for the students’ talent and creativity. More than 100 students joined the play, from the musicians, stage props, cast, dancers to the lighting crew. BINUS SCHOOL Simprug’s principal, Mr. Isaac, also took part as a performer in one of the scenes of the play and in between his busy schedule, he also joined the rehearsal session for the success of the play.
The school’s drama club is proud to have put on such a successful production and hopes to continue to showcase its talent in future plays. The play has left a lasting impression on all who have seen it and is sure to be remembered as one of the school’s greatest achievements.
