Dramatic Scripts: The Necklace

  1. 1. THE NECKLACE Lit. Unit 7, Lesson 6
  2. 2. OBJECTIVES (TODAY & TOMORROW) --compare/contrast plays and short stories --understand HOW to read a dramatic script --identify characterization through dialogue --read with meaning and style
  3. 3. Dramatic script both Short story
  4. 4. Readers theater is kind of in between reading the script silently to yourself and watching a full production of the play.
  5. 5. Who is speaking: Each line of the play begins with a name. This tells you who is speaking. The actors do not say the names of their characters before each line. The names are included so that the actors (and readers) know who is speaking. Sometimes, the names are written in bold print to set them off from the rest of the text. What is not said aloud: The words that appear in italics between the brackets are not to be spoken aloud. These words are directions that shape the action of the play.
  6. 6. Don’t worry about memorizing the lines or having props. Just read the lines while acting as if you are carrying out the actions described in italics. Use your voice to portray your character!
  7. 7. from A Doll’s House by Norwegian playwright, Henrik Ibsen
  8. 8. How lovely of you to come and visit me in the hospital. You are much too kind. You see a friend weeks after you broke your leg. She did NOT visit you in the hospital. Your old friend comes all the way from Alaska to visit you the day after you broke your leg. Someone you really don’t know that well visits you and brings you flowers you’re allergic to. Your favorite 3 year old cousin leaps into your hospital room carrying a big stuffed bear. You are in a lot of pain, having just woken from surgery, and your teacher walks into the room.
  9. 9. (depending on your character’s motivation) I love you. That’s not what I meant. Leave me alone. You can say that again. I don’t care. Of course I will. Please. You are crazy.
