VIII Spanish students took part in the annual Hispanic Theatre Festival at North London Collegiate School on Thursday 10 October. The students wrote their own script and performed a comedy titled Los padres the ella (Meet the parents). It tells the story of Londoners Elizabeth and Lola, a modern gay couple, who visit Lola’s family in a small and traditional village in rural Spain to let them know about their engagement and wedding plans. The comedy makes fun of English and Spanish stereotypes and cultural differences and defends love and diversity. Despite having only five lunchtimes to rehearse, the VIII Hispanists won Best Play – congratulations!
