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.'
