An ex Meden School drama pupil has described performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as ‘one of the best experiences of my life.’

After a donation of £5,000 from local charitites three Meden School A level drama students, Brandon Ranby, Thomas Spencer and Adam Brown, were given the opportunity to perform their own devised piece, The Fiery Path, at the world famous festival in August.

The piece asks should one mistake condone a man to hell and explores Blues legend Robert Johnson’s choices.

The actors sang and played live music and encouraged audience participation making the circumstances of famous people’s own fiery paths become personal to the audience.

Thomas Spencer, actor and co-director, said: “Going to Edinburgh and performing at the Fringe has been one of the best experiences to date of my life and one that I will remember and cherish in years to come.”

The show’s director and actor, Brandon Ranby, added: “It has been an interesting experience working alongside two like minded actors to create a thought inspiring piece.

“It will hopefully leave our audience questioning the ideals and values of today’s society.”
