Tudor Drama - The Stranger's Case

Teachers' notes   

The Stanger's Case is a KS2/3 drama workshop set in authentic Tudor surroundings at Bradford's Bolling Hall Museum. It vividly illustrates the religious tensions of the Tudor times and brings a Tudor house to life. Working with two actors, students explore important themes such as the clash between Protestant and Catholic. During the drama workshop, the students themselves become characters in the play and help servant Joan Beldon make a difficult decision.
