Resource Details


This is a lovely resource which introduces students to the concept of Theatre in Education – drama which has a message. Aimed at Year 9 / 10 / 11, the end result of this unit will be work which can be performed to a younger audience. This makes it ideal for producing work to show to primary schools, new Year 7 students and so on. A 4-page script is used as the basis for students to produce their own message play using the same characters – the cartoonish Daft family.  The script is accompanied by a full scheme of work (6 lessons), extension and homework activities and Key Words. Recently, this scheme was used as a basis for a BTEC group to devise and perform a play about Internet safety to incoming Year 7 students.
