Suggested Topics

This is an atmospheric building for drama. Write a play script using the established conventions. Set it in Chaucerian or Shakespearian times. Consider the language used and your audience. What is the purpose of the play? Is there a message in it? Prior to this, get the children to write part of a scene and then act it out. Use a ‘freeze frame’ technique to ascertain what the characters are thinking at that particular point (This is a good Speaking and Listening strategy and helps in the drafting of the final play script).
