Greek Myths: Three Short Plays for KS4

An exciting and accessible way-in to Greek Theatre

Three familiar ancient Greek myths dramatised as 30-minute plays for KS4 students. All are easy to read, involve young adults in highly dramatic situations, and are handy for independent work in medium-size groups. Also perfect for use as exam preparation pieces for GCSE AQA and Edexcel exams and BTEC Edexcel auditions.

  • ‘Darkness’ – The Abduction of Persephone (Kore) by Hades, King of the Underworld
  • ‘Echo’ – Iphigenia is to marry the greatest hero alive, Achilles
  • ‘Hero’ – The legend of the great Theseus and the Minotaur

Each play is preceded by teacher notes and suggestions for interactive activities, which are great to use before and during the play to get your students practically involved in Greek Theatre.

"An excellent resource which would be a very useful handbook for a drama teacher working to introduce Greek Drama to teenagers or to prepare them for a Drama exam. K McLoughlin, Drama and English Teacher & Independent Reviewer
