This 48-page photocopiable PDF offers support for an engaged reading of the play, with many suggestions for classroom drama work and discussion of the central ideas of the play.

The play is divided into manageable sections, with a range of activities on each:

  • active drama approaches to explore different interpretations of the play
  • close reading of key speeches and scenes
  • focused discussion work around the central ideas of the play
  • integrated background material providing historical, political and social contexts
  • extracts from reviews of the original 1946 production and the RNT production
  • well-supported writing and oral assignments arising out of classroom activities.

Those who say standards are slipping in English should be sent a copy immediately: I can’t imagine a resource which is more pedagogically sound, more rigorous and more stimulating. It is highly recommended.
