Ghetto was perhaps the most serious drama presented at Christ's College School, Finchley.



Presented just before Christmas, lead by a cast of VI Formers and a supporting company with ages ranging from 11-16, this tragedy based on a true story set in the Vilna Ghetto in 1942 and the development of a theatre group there was not the obvious school show.

Staged using mime and stylised movement (both of which would become staples of Benet's professional work in the years to come!) and with a soundtrack using opera and film scores, Ghetto boasted several terrific leading performances, and was a powerful and successful production.
