‘Simple Script’ by Alison Chaplin – A Short Original Script for KS2/3 Drama and English Lessons

What's included?

Five-page PDF play script

Key Stage

KS2, KS3


Years 3-9

A simple original script for two people which can be used for improvisation, role play, characterisation work, script annotating or writing, or for exploring PSHE issues.

Younger pupils can simply write the rest of the scene, or the following scene. Older pupils can add cut-away scenes and develop the extract into a whole play.

It can be used as a dialogue for performances, or as an exercise in writing scripts.

It’s also useful as a springboard for character work, improvisation, and learning about annotating scripts.

It can be used with upper KS2 and lower KS3.

Alison Chaplin is a drama teacher and writer living in the North West. She has over 30 years’ experience in youth theatre and drama teaching.
