Product Description
Friendship Play based on Wind in the Willows
This script has a cast of 6 - the characters from Wind in the Willows giving advice on the subject of friendship. It can be used for performance (with music suggestions) or as a guided reading or Readers Theater script i.e. just for use within the classroom.
Whilst there are clear literary links - with the classic by Kenneth Clarke - it is equally a PSHE resource, with additional teaching notes at the end focusing on what friendship is, the different types of friendship, what makes a good friend and how to cope when you do not have a friend.
Duration: around 5 - 10 minutes reading plus teaching/discussion time (the latter obviously open-ended).
Sample Text:
Badger: It’s just as well you have such understanding friends. You don’t deserve them.
Toad: (Tearfully) Oh I know! There I go again! I really can’t stop myself, sometimes!
Badger: Sometimes?
Ratty: Make that, pretty much all the time!
Mole: Oh, but he does have some very fine qualities.
Toad: Indeed! Intelligence, wit,
Badger: (Shouting) Toad!
Toad: What? What?
Badger: You’re off again! Blowing your own trumpet!
Toad: Well, someone has to!
Badger: But not you – all the time!
Mole: Oh Toad. I think you’re a very fine creature
Ratty: Mole! You’re too kind!
Badger: Way too kind!
Child: But it’s nice he’s standing up for his friend!
Narrator: Yes, he’s doing what all good friends do.
Toad: Looking out for me. Thanks, Mole!
Mole: My pleasure! I know you’d do the same for me!
Badger: Huh! Providing he wasn’t too busy!
Toad: Well, I know I’m not perfect. (Pauses) Well, not far off
Badger: (Warningly) Toad!
Toad: OK! OK! But you do all still love me, right?
Mole: Of course we do!
Ratty: Though you don’t always make it easy for us!
Badger: You can say that again!
Mole: We’ll always be there for you, Toad. Isn’t that right, Ratty?
Ratty: (Sighing) I guess! That is what friends are for. Standing by each other.
Toad: Excellent! After all, I am rather a splendid creature!
Badger: (Angrily) Toad! Do you never learn?
