Before setting off for half term, Mowden children, staff and parents were treated to Year 8’s blend of mystery, myth, mix-up, meddling and mistaken identity in the form of their own play, “Mystery at Southend.” Intersepersed with beautiful renditions of songs from, or inspired by life in Essex, the players did their best to dispell any negative ideas about the south-east county and its inhabitants. Folk songs, an Ian Dury hit and even The Braintree Races were served up by members of the cast, assisted by Mick Fowlds’ band and Margaret Roberson’s direction. The audience was left feeling thoroughly entertained and uplifted as they left the theatre for their long awaited half term holiday.
