Year 11 performing arts students at Caistor Yarborough Academy chose to focus on The Brain for their final devised piece of drama for the BTEC acting course.

Students studied medical and historical research, read true life stories about how dementia affects people and their families, hypnosis, brainwashing and observed how different types of people react to different situations based upon whether they prefer to use the right or left side of the brain.

Their audience was made to laugh, cry and think as their interpretation resulted in something both entertaining as well as harrowing, but it was a piece of drama which reflected their personal responses to the task. (Lin)
