Speaking and Listening Year 10 Role Play!

‘Romeo and Juliet’  Drama Speaking and Listening

Task
Script a Chat Show where the main characters discuss their points of view and emotions based on the events in the play up to and including Act 3 scene 5.

Characters include:
Chat Show Host – who will also give advice and ‘counselling’
Romeo
Juliet
Capulet

Choice of Titles (Or make up your own)
Fathers and daughters   
The Problems with Forbidden Love

Preparation

·        Have a specific angle which enables every character to talk a lot.
·        Each person must write their own questions and give them to the Host.
·        Answers don’t have to be fully scripted but you must know what you will say and it must be detailed and developed. A few lines will mean a weak grade.
·        Get in character – think about how your character will feel and respond.
·        The Host must give a chat show style introduction; ask the questions and develop discussion; and offer advice at the end before concluding.

The Audience

When others are performing, you will be the audience and will gain marks for asking questions.
