Your task today is to read, rehearse and perform a short play. Mr Davies will assign you your play.
In your literacy groups, you are to assign roles, read through the play and consider how you will ‘perform’ the play.
Some things to think about are:
- where you stand on stage / stage direction
- actions to accompany the lines
- voice / expression that matches your character
- performance to an audience
You will be performing your play to the class, so bring your a-grade acting skills!
Extension: Think about filming this play. Storyboard and film it using different camera shots and angles. Which part of the story calls for a close up?
