An original play performed by Raheen Wood Steiner School's class 7/8
This swashbuckling tale set in the 16th Century depicting heroes and heroines, spies and their masters, all eager for the acquisition
of new territories and the superb map making skills of Ben Reuben, the masterful Jewish mapmaker.
Set in Ireland, Portugal and Spain, the play shows how Donal O'Malley aids Ben Reuben to escape the Inquisition
and subsequently to secretly smuggle his maps while mistaken identities, dastardly attempts at subterfuge and espionage, confusion
and a sea battle rage about them.
This play comes out of our active learning programme, an approach which integrates many subjects and skills including history,geography, cartography, fencing, stage combat, tango, music and set building. Proceeds from the performances will go
to the the funding of the class trip to Italy to study Renaissance art and thinkers.
