A fabulous short play script that develops Robert Browning's narrative poem into a complete performance, using several narrators and inserting scenes which expand and support the original text. The play has elements of comedy and pathos and encourages students to explore the issue of breaking promises. Great for exploring narrative poetry and whole class reading sessions.
