Synopsis

Scary Play by Judith Johnson

Scary Play is a new play by Judith Johnson aimed at 11-14-year olds about the subject of fear itself. The play is accompanied by teaching materials containing fantastic ideas for drama work, as well as other activities designed to answer English Framework and NC objectives. 11-year-old Kal and his friends are having a sleepover to celebrate his birthday. As the night draws in, the kids indulge in an age old pastime: scaring the living daylights out of each other. Kal tells the story of a local house, said to be haunted by the ghost of a man who once lived there with his ageing mother and pet monkey. Kal challenges his friends to sneak into the haunted house where they find something terrifying in the upstairs bedroom...
