It was today that the Bristol School Theatre Company came to Escola Secundária D. Afonso Sanches, in Vila do Conde! This time, two performances. "Robin Hood" and "Not Romeo and Juliet"... Great moments, a whale of a time!!! For both pupils and teachers! Thank you for having joined in in this great adventure! It was really worthwhile!

I think St. Valentine is a little and semi-naked angel with a beautiful aureole over his head.
That angel is very funny and a joker. He thinks it funny to be playing with the feelings of the persons. When he sees a guy and a girl talking, he takes in his bow and shoots a love arrow straight into these guys, and when the arrow is shot it hits these persons and they fall in love with one another for a few hours. St. Valentine never misses a target, he is the angel which most perfectly shoots. He throws an arrow at the sky and the arrows moves fast and hits the target. Many targets. All people on earth. If the world became crazy, and only St.Valentine cared about making it normal, this angel would have to fall in love and the love arrows don´t have any effect on him. He never falls in love, so it is almost impossible for St. Valentine to fall in love. He doesn´t like any angel to fall in love. He thinks and thinks about it but he can´t find a solution. The other angels always ask him for a solution but the answer is always the same: ‘ I don´t have a solution’. After days and days without a solution the angels of other planets came to Earth, to try and help find a solution. During a counsel of the angels, expecting to find a solution, nothing happens. When St.Valentine comes to the counsel he looks at an angel girl. That angel is so beautiful, he thinks. His heart almost comes out of his mouth. The impossible is happening, St. Valentine is falling in love. But that angel girl doesn´t even look at St. Valentine because she´s distracted with the thing that is happening on earth. When St. Valentine falls that angel doesn´t see him; his heart is hurt and he feels like a lost and unhappy angel. He doesn´t know what he has to do to call the angel’s attention. He almost loses his hopes, when during a meeting of the counsel of the angels that angel girl sees him and at that moment she fall in love with St. Valentine. She comes to him and says ‘I LOVE YOU’ and kisses him. With that kiss a lot of hearts of all shapes are sent to earth and every thing becomes normal again. St. Valentine promises only to help the people and not play with their hearts. And on 14th February, the date of love between those angels, St. Valentine shoots love arrows to help the people fall in love. I think this is the real story of St. Valentine, the small and semi-naked angel.

When I see you my heart beats stronger, when you go away it loses its power, and I count the seconds till I see you again. Sometimes I feel I have no force to continue and meet the obstacles, but you are always there and you say "You are strong, you'll get it" and I believe and I gain the strength I had never known existed. When I'm with you I feel important and feel that I can be myself. With you by my side I find myself a different being, a being who is capable of loving someone and making someone feel loved, one being able to do and be happy. A sensitive person, sincere, strong, capable to say what they feel without fear.
When you say "I love you” all is good, the problems disappear, people disappear, everything disappears, I'm just me and you.
I love you
