Tudor Drama - The Stranger´s Case
The Stranger's Case is a unique KS2/3 drama workshop set in authentic Tudor surroundings at Bradford's Bolling Hall Museum.
The Stranger's Case 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.
The Stranger’s Case can be used to support the following National Curriculum schemes of work:
Unit 8: What were the differences between the lives of rich and poor people in Tudor times?
Unit 5: Elizabeth I - How successfully did she tackle the problems of her reign?
Section 2: When and why did religion first cause a problem for the Tudors?
