About the Resource

Sausages For Tea is a mini play set in 1940, during World War 2. It tells the short story of one family’s experiences during an air raid in a fictional town. The play is a fantastic resource to enable school pupils to gain some insight into the lives of children at that time, and to learn some historical facts about life on the Home Front during the Second World War. The play can be used for small group reading in the classroom, to enhance learning, or for children to give performances during assembly or whole school topic days. Older students might well find this useful for TIE performances to younger students for BTEC. The script includes full production notes to support performances and a comprehensive list of follow-on activities for further discussion and work.

The script is supplied as a pdf document. For a sample, click here.

About the Author

Alison Chaplin is a qualified drama teacher, a writer and an experienced youth theatre director. She mostly writes plays for children to read and perform. Because she is still a big kid herself, she likes to write plays which are funny. But she has also written some serious plays too. She doesn't really have a favourite play, although her Christmas play - The Xmas Factor - makes her laugh a lot.

 She has written over 20 plays and enjoys hearing about them being performed, and what young actors liked about their performances.

 When she’s not writing plays, Alison is the manager of Arts On The Move, a company providing lovely creative support for schools, actors, youth groups and drama practitioners.  

 Alison's favourite colour is bright pink. Her favourite food is potatoes. Her favourite football team is Manchester City. She enjoys watching TV, reading and going to Zumba classes.
