Play In A Day

Ancient Greece; the Cradle of Civilisation. Where men were men but no-one dared argue with the women of Sparta

Home to the greatest thinkers, philosophers, writers and athletes of the day. Meet Alexander the Great, the young general who sulks if he doesn't get his own way, Herodotus the Historian (who thinks he's John Travolta) and Archimedes the mathematician who discovers displacement theory and accidentally invents streaking. This is a fun-filled ride through the age of classical Greece as you've never seen it before.

Working together as actors to create a fun, action-packed 15- 20 minute performance, informing as much as it entertains, students will explore a wide range of topical issues.

Key themes:

-          the value of teamwork

-         self-expression

-         public speaking

-         confidence building

-         increased subject knowledge

Will anyone heed poor Cassandra? Will Pandora open the box? Will our hero escape the snake haired Medusa? Hang on; the Chorus would like a show of hands, please…
