Representation in Drama (RinD) release document containing a list of 150 plays written by writers from the global majority for teachers, students, young people and theatresPublished on Thu 21 Oct 2021
RinD, a LTC initiative, has put together a document containing a list of 150 plays written by writers from the global majority for teachers, students, young people and theatres. It is available to view here: https://royalcourttheatre.com/representation-in-drama-150-plays-by-writers-from-the-global-majority/
Access the no colour reliance version here.
The list of 150 plays is compiled from writers from the global majority with designer Kunmi Ogunsola to enable teachers and students to find plays and ensure that students feel represented in the Drama classroom and in the theatre industry. Being able to study and perform characters that look like and reflect the lived experience of students raises self-esteem and aspiration in students. Many students from the global majority leave school without having studied a play or novel that includes a character that is relevant to and representative of who they are. The list will broaden and enrich students, and teachers, experience of Theatre and playwriting.
RinD has also created a set of filmed resources to support the study of four plays by writers from the global majority, which were recently added to Pearson Edexcel’s GCSE Drama specification. Read news of this here.
