Dec. 11: You are a playwright. You’ve been hired to be consultants in a cross curricular play project.
Think that’s impossible?
“I’m just one hundred and one, five months and a day.”
“I can’t believe that!” said Alice.
“Can’t you?” the Queen said in a pitying tone. “Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.”
Alice laughed. “There’s no use trying,” she said: “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
- We will now start this year’s playwriting unit with collaboratively created scenes involving 6 impossible things before breakfast. To be performed today! Let’s get the imaginations going.
- Tomorrow you will work with what makes a great one act play, and you will get to read a series of one act plays for play analysis. You will be taught by Mr. Barrington.
- The next day, you’ll use Writing Prompts to practice writing dialogue for each other. You will be taught by Mr. Barrington.
- On Friday, we’ll play a game called Title Pitch and another game called Random Lines, before we work on writing original One Page Scripts, together.
