I’m currently preparing a student for her Grade 8 Trinity College Speech & Drama solo examination. I was unclear what this particular part of the syllabus is asking of the candidate: “The presentation of a thematically linked programme…”
My question is whether the candidate should introduce and link each piece presented back to her chosen theme or whether linking her programme isn’t required? i.e. Is the theme itself the ‘linked’ portion of the programme and requires no further formal expansion by the candidate?
