The 'Laraman One-Act Festival' gives, once again, the
'Ratlets' the opportunity to direct and perform their own plays. Two of the five
plays were written by members of the Youth Group.
The plays were adjudicated by actress and drama therapist,
Kate McCormack, and an awards ceremony took place on the last night of the festival.
The winners were:
