Synopsis

The Ratz by Simon Adorian, Cecily O'Neill, Simon Adorian, Cecily O'Neill

The Ratz is based on the legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin, but places the same dilemmas in a more contemporary context. Through role-play and the suggested improvisations, the actors develop the characters and the action of every scene in the play. Script and extension materials can be used as a lead-in to workshops in drama Ideas and scenes are built into the text so that workshops and groups can work towards a production of the play

Reviews

'This plays puts new twists in an old tale. Lower secondary pupils will love the vivid clash of ideas and personalities; teachers will find The Ratz an excellent springboard for drama improvisation, discussion and written work. Used for production or classroom reading, this is a challenging play -- relevant to young people today.'
