RSC Learning Network teacher Jude Graham uses drama strategies to compare the character of Prospero in two key scenes of the Tempest.
It begins with a game of wink murder, in which pupils "die" reciting some of Prospero's lines. The class read out text, pinpointing areas where rhythm breaks down to reflect Prospero's change of heart.
Improvisation is used in groups of three, representing the conflicting sides of Prospero's conscience. The pupils then play different characters to understand how the play can be differently interpreted by director or audience.
