Script one - Now After
A posh English school child moves to Wales and tries to learn the local sayings said by pupils at the local secondary school!
Script 2 - Mam Bach!
Kiddo enters – they have obviously had a rough day at school. Mam walks on and off in the background throughout this scene – their “housework” tasks should get more and more comical as the scene goes on i.e. polishing a rubber chicken, or hoovering in a wig.
The character of Mam can be played by a boy or girl but should dress as a stereotypical Welsh Mam.
English Script with elements of Welsh language!
Please note that these are schort script extracts of original script written by me.
Here is a short scheme of work focussing on the play Undermilk Wood by Dylan Thomas. Formed the Drama section of a larger cross-curricular project for the new curriculum in Wales focussing on the theme of “What is home?”
Two lesson powerpoints and booklet work as well as some short script bites to explore practically.
Very well received by pupils and non-specialist staff alike!
