[lo 3.4]

The story in the forest

Stage One

  • use the school hall or the stage
  • imagine a forest in this space
  • place chairs (the trees) in the space
  • if you want a river flowing through the forest, mark on the floor where the river should be
  • walk through the forest to experience and be aware of the space and environment they are going to be working in
  • make sure they visualise the setting, colours, textures, sounds, smells, etc. of the forest

Stage Two

  • leave the ‘forest’;
  • think about a character you would like to be in the forest – you can even be an animal;
  • be creative;
  • have them explore the elements of characterisation :
  • Action : What am I doing?
  • Volition: Why am I doing it? (will-power)
  • Adjustment : How am I doing it?

- explore the external attributes to characterisation :

  • the body (is the character young, old, fat, cripple…?)
  • the voice (shrill, deep, seductive, old, childlike,…?)
  • the face (narrow eyes, nervous twitch, evil, good…?)
  • the attitude (self confident, nervous, insecure, in charge…?)
  • the props (glasses, tiara, walking stick, gun…?)
  • the costume (evening gown, tuxedo, rags, track suit…?)
  • the make up (beard, fantasy, aging…?)
  • return to, and move through the forest as the character you have created

Stage Three

  • divide into groups;
  • maintain the character that you originally created and devise a story using it and the characters of the other learners in the group;
  • create appropriate dialogue;
  • write down the dialogue;
  • plan and rehearse your story;
  • perform your stories before the rest of the class.


  • every action that takes place on stage must serve a purpose
  • make sure your dialogue is easy to say and easy to remember
  • make sure your story has a beginning, middle and an end
  • make sure your story has a climax
  • instead of using a lot of dialogue, try actions instead – you don’t have to say anything to make a point
  • use as much of the space available to you – movement on stage can be very exciting


The learner is able to: 1 2 3 4
Develop a level of self-confidence and the skills to focus and concentrate
Develops a sense of spatial awareness
Adopt and maintain a character during the duration of the play
Develop and use suitable dialogue, as well as suitable gestures and movements
Interpret the role with self-confidence
Create and develop a short text
Be aware of personal creative possibilities
Work as an individual in a group
Perform characteristics and dramatic interaction clearly


LO 3
