We went to see Pugsley’s school play this evening. Darwin Rocks, it’s called; a musical written for school performance and Pugsley played the title role, and did it very well indeed. He looked so like his father and great-grandfather, it twisted my heart, and he sang a duet – a love duet, no less – with Emma Darwin-to-be.
I’m so much in favour of drama in schools, I wish it were not squeezed out in many secondary schools and I hope that Pugsley can keep it going. Squiffany, who’s been at high school for two years, says that there are performances but the students most likely to take part are those taking Drama at GCSE and A Level, which doesn’t involve her – so we’ll see.
A jolly afternoon and evening, and we came home and ate omelettes.
