About the Resource

This comic play was created over a series of years from conversations overheard as the author went around examining for GCSE Drama - so a number of the funniest lines are actually true! Alison told some her students about them and they thought it would be good fun to create a play from the material and it was their idea to have the Godlike examiner at the end.The characters can be changed to fit male or female roles. It has simple staging, although there are some technical challenges with lighting. Also Petra needs the most elaborate costume you can provide and as many props as you can get on the stage.... those sort of props that every Drama department has, often for unknown reasons.
