 "I use these scenes in my drama classes, the actors love using them, and they get great results!"

 

Ideal for drama teachers!

20 Scenes! 72 pages!
The short scenes in this book have been written specifically for use in drama classes for teens and adults. They're generally short (under five minutes) and require just one to four actors. Most of the scenes are not gender specific (you can simply change a characters name to change the sex). These qualities make the scripts ideal for a drama class where students are split into small groups, given an acting dynamic to explore and then perform to the group.
Many of the scenes have tips or instructions for performance. Teachers can use these instructions for an instant drama class or  ignore them and use the script for their own lesson.

 

Sample Scene...

Sample Scene from Drama Scene Book 1...

JENNIFER is standing on the street handing out fliers for her current favourite cause. LISA (an old friend who is never short of advice) is walking past.

JENNIFER: (Handing a flier) Would you like some information on -
LISA: (Interrupting) Hi Jen. What've you got there?
JENNIFER: Oh hi! I'm passing out information on animal cruelty.
LISA: I think that's sick!
JENNIFER: What?
LISA: You should be ashamed of yourself.
JENNIFER: No, you don't understand -
LISA: I should call the SPCA right now!
JENNIFER: I am the SPCA.
LISA: What's the world coming to? The SPCA? This is madness! They've become an axis of evil. (Pause and with a sense of conspiracy) Like Toyota.
JENNIFER: Toyota? What?
LISA:  I have a mind to instigate a citizens arrest right here, right now.
JENNIFER: No, you're not listening -
LISA: At least I can listen – and speak for myself – and have rights, not like those poor dear animals you're doing terrible, shameful things to! (snatching the pile of fliers from Jennifer hands) And I'll take these for evidence. Thank you!
JENNIFER: If you'll just take a look at the flier -
LISA: I will do no such thing! You won't catch me defiling my eyes with this perverted garbage.
JENNIFER: (Snatching a flier back and holding it up to Lisa's face) It's against animal cruelty! OK?! Look at this!
LISA: Oh, it is too. Well why the heck didn't you say so!
JENNIFER: You wouldn't listen -
LISA: So it's all my fault? Look, let's not play the blame game. I think we can both be bigger than that.
JENNIFER: I haven't done anything wrong!
LISA: (Condescendingly) Ssshhhhhh. It's OK. You don't have to apologise. You're a beautiful person and the last thing you need is negative thoughts about yourself.
JENNIFER: What are you talking about?
LISA: I see what's happening here.
JENNIFER: What?
LISA: You're compensating for a negative view of yourself by taking up the cause of someone else. It's classic emotional substitution and denial.
JENNIFER: It is?
LISA: Yes it is. It happens with people who can't find anything good about themselves.
JENNIFER: What can I do?
LISA: In your case nothing... you're probably better to bury it deep and stick with denial.
JENNIFER: I'm a little confused here. Are you trying to help?
LISA: (Smug) I do what I can, where I can to help others.
JENNIFER: Sounds like classic emotional substitution and denial. (Pats her on the shoulder and starts to exit) See if you can hand out all those fliers. You'll feel better.
LISA: (Stunned) OK, yeah. (Calling out to a passer-by) Would you like information on animal cruelty – I mean against animal cruelty?
Black out.
