Product Description

Review

‘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.’ Glen Pike, English Teacher

Format: Paperback
It is very useful that this edition includes the original outline of the story along with Robert Browning's poem of this famous legend. It provides very useful pre-twentieth century links to tie in with National Curriculum requirements.
Pupils love to read this play aloud, and take part in Drama activities. This gives all students the opportunity to try directing a short scene in small groups.
The stage directions are clear and helpful, and enable the reader to visualise the play on stage, even on a first reading.
Useful activites are provided at the back of the book, along with suggestions for staging the play.
Every time I read it, I enjoy the 'Council Chamber' scenes with the comical, stereotypical councillors more and more. My classes love to draw caricatures based on them.
Overall, an excellent publication which brings this classic story up to date.

I am doing this play for the school play (Yr 7) and we're all really enjoying it, but it's quite tricky!
