A suffragette themed play set in World War 1. It examines political and social attitudes prevalent at the time, depicts life in London and on the Western Front (including a cameo of J B Priestley as a young man) and features an ingenious plot involving John Constable’s painting of The Cornfield!

Check out my resource for the new AQA GCSE Drama spec The 39 Steps, it's had rave reviews!
This scheme of work is ideal for teaching The 39 Steps.
I know how hectic a drama teacher’s life is, so these twelve one-hour lesson plans are simply laid out and a doddle to follow. There are easy to photocopy handouts, lots of inspiring videos and many web links – so it’s important you can access YouTube to really take advantage of all the valuable resources. Read more below…

Cranford at Christmas
Author: Laura Turner
6 to 10 December 7:45pm
Adapted from the Cranford stories by Elizabeth Gaskell. Deep in the frosty English countryside,chestnuts are roasting and carols are being sung as the folk of Cranford busily prepare for Christmas.|
But beyond the cosy hubbub of festivity, snow continues to fall and when disaster strikes, the community must unite to keep the spirit of Christmas alive! This is a heart warming , funny tale of charity and goodwill to all women and men to celebrate the most magical time of the year.
This is an ideal traditional Victorian tale which is both highly amusing, and good Christmas entertainment.

I wondered if anyone else has been receiving similar emails to the following:-
“I came across your email address at (http://www.dramagroups.com/) and I would so much like us to be friends. I have something important to discuss with you.
I have received more than one, and identical to the above, from apparently different people.
Durham Dales Festival of Performing Arts
I’m sorry you have been bothered with spam email, please rest assured that it is nothing to do with www.dramagroups.com. We would not email such a thing to you and would not / have not released email addresses to anyone. The only way that these people could have picked up your email address is by trawling the www.dramagroups.com website. If you would like me to remove your email address from our website just let me know and I’ll take it down.
It is unfortunate that people abuse the email system in this way as it is the easiest way for genuine people to get in touch if they do not use social media.
I’ll put your comments up in our #Advice section along with my reply and ask our visitors for comments.

A Proper Caper And No MistakeDate Req'd: ASAP
I stumbled on an article in 2009 about a play called "A Proper Caper And No Mistake" by Anthea Roberts that was performed by the Buckfastleigh Drama Group. The story sounds absolutely fascinating and I was reaching out to see if there are any hard copies available of the play. Or even a digital copy. I would love to purchase one for reading.
