20 New World Plays And Monologues
A contemporary collection of 20 short challenging plays for KS3 English and Drama. Each play is stand alone and can be explored, rehearsed, and developed into a performance within a lesson. The 20 monologues are written in the context of ‘The Given Circumstances’ giving pupils further insight into developing characters ready for performance or through detailed written analysis. Each play is complimented with practical extension work that support drama objectives through speaking and listening, reading and writing in the framework of teaching English.
These plays and tasks allow students to develop skills and knowledge of theatre practitioner’ styles and also help to scaffold the development of work for experienced English and Drama teachers, covering Stanislavski, Brecht and Physical Theatre. They offer minimum pre-planning and preparation for high ability pupils and is a great resource for cover lessons that can be delivered by teachers with limited Drama experience. This book contains extended revision tasks that are beneficial for assessments in GCSE English, whilst supporting young people and their wellbeing through allowing them to tackle serious issues in a safe context.
