This play is actually a documentary I have used over and over with my students. It does not reenact the events of the Alamo, so their are no fighting scenes. The play is used to discover why the Alamo Defenders stayed to face certain death. This question comes up often when studying this subject. The answers will reveal character traits students of today seldom experience. Past students often bring up the play when I see them no matter how long it has been since they portrayed an Alamo soldier. They find it not only informative but also fun.
We usually read through the play several times before acting it out. Instead of performing in front of a live audience, I made a video.
