Oxford Playscripts: Johnny and the Dead by Terry Pratchett, Stephen Briggs


Oxford Playscripts: Johnny and the Dead by Terry Pratchett, Stephen Briggs

An engaging classroom playscript. Johnny Maxwell, visiting the local cemetery, discovers that he can see the dead. He can talk to them, too - much to his friends' amazement. So when the news breaks that the local council plans to sell the cemetery to a property developer, Johnny learns that there are some things in life (and death) that are worth fighting for...


We are currently doing this in our English class and it is amazing! Reading it as a play is just as exciting as the book. It contains most of the original humour and text. All of our class really enjoy it! 5 star Amazon review

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
