Each show features an exam-busting workshop, devised by Chris Culpin, looking at key skills needed for the examination and a play ‘Hitler on Trial’ which dramatises key features of the GCSE specification. The plays are performed by professional actors in full costume providing a very entertaining way for students to revise. Prosecuting and Defence Counsels question and cross-examine a series of contemporary witnesses whose testimony ranges widely across the history of Weimar and Nazi Germany. At the end, students vote to decide whether Hitler is guilty.
The School’s History team who produce and perform this play work closely with the exam board that set our students’ question papers each year so that they can provide the most up-to-date skills and knowledge required by the examination. Therefore this is an excellent opportunity for students to begin to prepare themselves for their examination and begin their revision by actively reviewing and revising their knowledge about Hitler’s rise to power and his rule over Germany.
