About the Resource

Written for BTEC Individual Showcase, this full length play incorporates twenty stand-alone monologues on the theme of Destiny which could also be used for auditions or for a group showcase evening.

Two Immortals stir the waters of the Fount of Destiny and watch as the stories which they summon unfold. Is everything pre-ordained, or are humans able to influence their destinies?

The monologues, each approximately three minutes long, are written in a variety of styles to meet the needs of all learners. Most of the characters can be played by actors of either gender with minimal set or props.

The full resource is supplied in both Word and PDF formats.

 

About the Authors

 

The resource has been jointly written by Clive Hulme and Chris Rowley who have known each other for more than 20 years.

 

Chris Rowley graduated in Drama in 1992 and completed his Drama in Education PGCE at U.C.E. in Birmingham in 1994. Since then he has been a Head of Department at three secondary schools and at present is Curriculum Team leader at The King’s C.E. School in Wolverhampton. Chris has written numerous schemes and resources for all Key Stages and has developed assessment systems and policies. He has also written and directed many plays for examination performances, special events, national conferences, primary liaison projects and for productions at professional venues. Prior to hearing his calling for teaching Chris was co-founder of The Lost Theatre Company. Here he performed, co-wrote two plays and composed and produced the original music for the company.

 

Clive Hulme taught Drama / Performing Arts for 30 years before taking early retirement and setting up r4d.


Last year's Discovery Channel, and the previous year's Travelogues (see below - they are both on offer and each contain some fantastic monologues) were used with great success.

Enquiries / comments received in August and September 2015 include:

"Is there going to be another amazing pack of monologues this year for Btec? Please say yes as I am relying on you!"

"We got 4 Distinction Stars, 1 Distinction, 2 Merits and 2 level 1s (from 2 very weak students)".

"Will you be doing monologues for BTEC again this year? My kids who really struggle did great with lots of yours last year. Am in an inner city school and get real "mixed ability" students. Thanks".

"I was just wondering if you had any plans for creating materials for the new NQF Unit 1 theme 'Destiny'? . I have found these resources extremely useful and effective, with students producing some excellent work with fantastic results. I look forward to purchasing the next instalment".
