This drama addresses the theme of ‘othering’. The drama is set in a fictional place, Hasmala, and the ‘othered’ group is called The Elgons. It is told in the form of legend or fantasy. The Elgons are distinguished by their unusual ears. This means that they are not identifiable as any real-life sub-group. Story is a powerful tool to use when trying to change hearts and minds.

Note this dram is much more than role-play. The drama consists of 5 lesson, and there are many pointers for discussion for the teacher. The strategies used include: Teacher narrator, Teacher-in-Role, Group work, Hot seating, Conscience alley, Whole Class improvisation, Living Narrative. The areas for reflection include discussion of which source of information we can believe.
