Johnny and the Dead Drama SOW

(0)
Johnny and the Dead by Terry Pratchett adapted by Stephen Briggs You will need to purchase a copy of the script for this SOW. Story: Sell the cemetery? Over their dead bodies…Not many people can see the dead (not many would want to). Twelve-year-old Johnny Maxwell can. And he’s got bad news for them: the council want to sell the cemetery as a building site, but they’d better watch out - the dead have learnt a thing or two from Johnny. They’re not going to take it lying down …especially since it’s Halloween tomorrow. Besides, they’re beginning to find that life is a lot more fun than it was when they were…well…alive. Particularly if they break a few rules … This unit of work introduces the story, characters, themes and has further discussion activities. It also includes information about types of staging and use of stage in theatres. The PowerPoint includes 7 lessons worth of material. It would appropriate for Year 9 + and could even be used for AQA Drama Component 3 scripted performance *I do not own any of the media used in this unit of work

I love you mum, I promise I won't die - Mark Wheeler AQA Drama SOW
lydia_millar13lydia_millar13

I love you mum, I promise I won't die - Mark Wheeler AQA Drama SOW

(0)
This SOW includes two packs - one practical exploration of Mark Wheelers play. The SOW is aimed towards AQA GCSE Drama Component 3 scripted performance. Mark Wheeler is often recommended by drama teachers, theatre practitioners and is approved by AQA for theatre performances for the GCSE course. This bundle is ready to teach and includes both practical and theory to best prepare students for the exam. “I Love You, Mum - I Promise I Won’t Die” is a poignant verbatim play that narrates the tragic tale of 16-year-old Daniel Spargo-Mabbs, who lost his life after consuming MDMA during a night out with friends. The play derives its name from Daniel’s last words to his mother just before he left home, infusing it with an eerie yet touching quality. While sharing thematic similarities with Wheeller’s other works, this play stands out as it elegantly weaves the words of Daniel’s family and friends into its narrative, rendering it emotionally resonant and unforgettable. The genesis of the play can be traced back to Dan’s drama teacher, Izzy Forrester, who approached his parents with the idea that utilizing the medium of drama, which held a special place in Dan’s heart, could serve as a compelling means to convey his story to other young individuals. *I do not own any media, script or text used in the powerpoint
