Play In A Day

Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest! Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!

A Play in a Day for up to 30 KS2 or KS3 pupils.

Raise the top sails and shiver mi’ timbers. Set sail for Treasure Island! Join Konflux Theatre as we bring to life Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tales of adventures on the high seas. Follow Jim Hawkins to sea, meet Billy Bones, serve under Cap’n Smollett, and tangle with Long John Silver. Just be sure you don’t clap eyes on the Black Spot. What will become of Captain Flint’s treasure? It’s up to you to find out. But remember, X marks the spot.

Working together as actors to create a fun, action-packed short performance, informing as much as it entertains, the students will be using drama, improvisation, script work and key skills.

Key themes:

-         the value of teamwork

-         self-expression

-         public speaking

-         confidence building

-         increased subject knowledge

A fantastic compliment to explore the classic text in the classroom.
