DRAMA Festival 1st Scene Script Reading: The Whipping Club, by Deborah Henry

Feedback Note Summary: This is an accomplished script that deals with a number of thematic issues and concerns in a clever and engaging way. You present a clear narrative through-line that demonstrates an understanding of history and precedent of marriage, religion and children in 1960s Ireland. Adrian is a strong lead who successfully faces multiple, increasingly formidable, conflicts. Each character around him plays an important role in developing the audience’s understanding of his predicament and how it may prove so dangerous for him.


Narration: Allison Kampf
