The box – Rhinegold Publishing

The box


A closed or empty box can conjure up a host of images, ideas and thoughts. Boxes made of different materials, housing all sorts of unexpected things. Why? When? Who? and Where? are questions asked by this simple prop, with creative drama supplying possible answers. Using physicality, dialogue and some characterisation development, students can let their imaginations run free about any old box.

This scheme comprises seven short lessons designed to experiment with making drama from a real or imagined prop and help students to work collaboratively and creatively.
