The standard of production at GAA never fail to blow me away. They are always topical, unique and fresh, and a huge variety from musicals, serious drama, shakespeare, pantomime, improvised and scripted.

Post Mortem is the story of John Cavan is a young English soldier, the son of a London editor, fighting in the trenches in 1917. He argues with his fellow soldier Perry Lomas, who believes John's father's newspaper is guilty of glorifying the war. At the end of the scene John is mortally wounded by enemy fire. The following six scenes take place in 1930 back in England, as John's ghost encounters friends, family, and his girlfriend Monica, and discovers what the war has meant to them - not a great deal, as it turns out. Finally, we return to 1917, and the scene of John's death. Our senior students really pushed themselves creatively in this tough acting piece.
