Stratford pupils write play out of Olympic hopes

Pupils at a Stratford primary school have written their own play about the Olympic Games.

Maryland Primary School will be staging their production of “Who put the GREAT in Great Britain?”, a play they created themselves which is set in Stratford.

A group of children at the Gurney Road school find a mysterious object, the Olympic torch, which takes them through a magical journey of self discovery through time and sport.

Then they return to the present day after having collected a series of rings which make up the Olympic logo - and celebrate the fact that the Olympics have come to Stratford and they are a part of it.

“Who put the GREAT in Great Britain?” is being staged at Maryland Primary School, Gurney Road, Stratford, on July 9 and 10 at 6.30pm.
