Tales out of School: Three Original Short Plays for GCSE

Three Original Short Plays with Activities for GCSE Drama

Entertain, engage and challenge your GCSE Drama students with this collection of imaginative and thought-provoking plays written for teenagers, about teenagers. Covering science-fiction, comedy and thriller, each piece offers a different take on typical school life:

  • 20-minute plays with casts of 4-6 and minimal staging make perfect group-performance pieces
  • Accompanying activities explore key theatrical elements such as staging and characterisation
  • Includes a variety of thematic discussion and writing tasks – ideal for Drama or English lessons

Whether used as assessment pieces or as springboards for discussion, analysis and creative activities, students will exploit these character-driven plays to their full potential.

Bright Futures: A dark vision of a dystopian future in which students are threatened with the most permanent exclusion of all…

Common Ground: A light-hearted comedy revolving around the new Year 11 common room in which the pupils realise they actually have less in common than they thought…

Park-Bench: A sinister take on one of the best-known Drama games in which a student has disappeared in unclear circumstances…

Terrific pieces of theatre for young people… The subject matter for all three pieces is powerful and provoking.
– J O’Hanlan, Drama and English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
