The Schoolroom & Last Day of Term - Two Short Plays


Charles Hemming

Published by SchoolPlay Productions

9 Female

The Schoolroom - "This Form is causing too much trouble. Already this morning I have had reported to me a case of a stolen pencil-case; a master has been unable to get into the room; and a boy has been attacked and had his trousers taken. And it's not yet 11 o'clock." After the Head's lecture and further ribaldry and provocation, the boys of Form 2.3 show unexpected gallantry towards the girls, who were uninvolved with the earlier antics, and their generosity is reciprocated when one of the boys is wrongly accused of a more serious offence.

Suggested Age Range : 11 to 15. Running Time : 30 minutes. Set : A secondary school classroom.

Last Day of Term - The boys in a Year 8 Form resent having to work on the last day of term, whilst also showing some hostility to two of the girls. Some manage to obtain some relief by "helping" the caretaker set up the hall for Assembly but plans to embarrass one of the girls do not work out quite as expected. Cast : 11 ( 9 m, 2f ). Suggested Age Range : 11 to 15. Running Time : 30 minutes. Set : A classroom and the school assembly hall.
