Delving headfirst in a pool of hundred something applications was a riveting task, fueled by my surprise in the sheer interest towards COMUN and the support of Colombo society.

Play at Parks Street Mews

Being a first year, higher level IB theatre students, one can imagine my elation when being offered tickets to go see a play performed by my peers at, ‘Elizabeth Moir’, titled, “An Enemy of the State” by Henrik Ibsens.   I was excited for two reasons.
