The English Literary & Drama Society

        The ELDS began its fruitful and triumphant year in a spirit of aspiration and ambition.

Mast. Nevan Gunasekara led the Senior Cast of Actors come in as Second Runners-Up in the Royal Interact Drama Competition organised  by the Interact Club of Royal College. Mast. Devin Randeniya went on to win the Best Actor in a Male Role Award for his portrayal of the convict in The Bishop’s Candlesticks by Norman Mckinnel.


        Our greatest achievement, however, was coming into the Finals of the Inter School Shakespeare Drama Competition after nine long years. They performed an Science Fiction adaptation of  Shakespeare’s first tragedy, ‘Titus Andronicus’. Mast. Rehan Amaratunga and Mast. Demintha Fonseka were nominated for the Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor in a Male Role Award for their portrayals of Titus and Marcus Andronicus respectively. Mast. Kaveesha Samaranayake led a massive cast to secure the Second Runners Up position in the Finals.
