Play in a Week
Play in a Week is a popular extension to our Play in a Day and offers groups the opportunity to devise, rehearse and perform a play under the guidance of one of Writer / Directors.
Throughout the week the group create the drama; develop characters, discuss and devise scenes to build their play and rehearse the short play for performance on the final afternoon. This process is designed to develop writing, drama and improvisation skills and teamwork.
Play in a Week is a popular choice for groups and schools who have a theme week, or a special celebration, as the play can be on any topic you choose.
Very recently Play in a Week has been the focus point for many school transition projects. Working with a number of pupils from each feeder primary school, Play in a Week is a fantastic opportunity for children to come together to meet each other, share ideas and then work together to create their very own play. The final play often takes place in the secondary school where the children will start their new schooling life together.
We've worked with groups on themes as diverse as Careers, Tall Ships, Racism, Mining Communities and Bullying, to name but a few!
Requirements for Play in a Week:
- Suitable space for the workshops, rehearsal and performance
- Groups need to be available for the entire process
Play in a Week is a 5 day project for Key Stage 2, 3 or 4 groups.
