Beyond The Canon's Plays for Young Activists - Plays for Young People Synopsis

Three Plays by Women from the Global Majority.

A first-of-its-kind anthology, Beyond The Canon's Plays for Young Activists, part of Methuen Drama Plays for Young People, combines plays, toolkits, and an online guide to empower young people into activism.

With award-winning plays from the UK's most revolutionary female writers of colour, as well as bespoke multimedia learning guides, this collection offers young global activists aged 16+, as well as teachers and creatives at any level, the opportunity to diversify their education and enhance their understanding of politically driven plays, world politics and social justice.

Unique in how it amplifies these selected award-winning plays by incorporating learning guides that accommodate different learning styles (be they visual, auditory, reading/writing and kinaesthetic), Beyond The Canon dares readers to take a deeper dive into the world of the play, be inspired by the themes and provocations and use the anthology to evolve into the ultimate activist.

The plays include:
Muhammad Ali and Me by Mojisola Adebayo
A Museum in Baghdad by Hannah Khalil
Acceptance by Amy Ng

With resources like top tips on creating a safe space, practical drama challenges and games, interviews with the writers, research guides and activism test sheets, Beyond The Canon's Plays for Young Activists will spark the imagination of any and all readers, likely inspiring the next Mojisola Adebayo, Hannah Khalil and Amy Ng.
