Tuesday Grammar

When writing speech for play scripts, it can be useful to be confident at using adverbials and relative pronouns as they can help tell the story. 

 

When introducing the setting for the whole play or for just a scene, it is useful to use relative pronouns to help describe the environment or key characteristics about a character who will be included in the play. 

 

Read the examples below and try to spot how relative clauses or adverbials have been used to build characters or scenes. 

 

Example: 

Character Introduction:

Mr Wheeldon, who is the leader of Climbing Team One, has trained in mountaineering for 10 years and is ecstatic to be selected to lead the team this year. 

 

Above, we have introduced a character, explained what his role is in the play and emphasised his passion for mountaineering - this can help an actor "become" the character on stage. 

 

Example: 

Scene Two: 

The room, which serves as a lounge for Climbing Team One, is spacious and has at least a dozen armchairs, sofas and coffee tables scattered about the light-filled and comfortable space. A top-of-the-range drinks machine is stationed against one wall, reliably providing much needed refreshments to the team on demand, who can be found here daily during peak season. Early each morning, a cleaner and kitchen server spruce up the room ensuring that it is spotless, fresh and that the fridge is stocked with snacks, which are free of course. A platter of fresh pastries is delivered each day at about 11 o'clock in the morning, to accompany the habitual break for tea and coffee held during the daily planning meeting.  Our scene begins just after said break, as team members rest: brushing remnants of pastries off their knitted jumpers and corduroy trousers before returning to the planning table - all the while, fighting the urge to nap.  Mr Wheeldon is first to move back to the planning table and settles in his seat, rustling papers as he drops hints to the team that it is time to return - Mount Everest will not climb itself!

MINI writing task: Choose an image from below and practise the skill of setting the scene, introducing a character or writing speech for a character. Try to cover at least one of each and remember that practise makes perfect.
