Description

Students will love performing Nikolai Gogol’s absurd Russian short story about a man who wakes up one morning only to discover that his nose has disappeared. When he tracks it down, he finds that the Nose has become a government official and refuses to return to its place. Imagine some young person dressed in a nose costume running around stage! It’s an unforgettable example of farce. The events in the story cannot be explained—though students may have a lot of fun trying. Few plays are as fun to produce as this! Be sure to talk about theme, setting, and conflict. Originally from my Scholastic book, Read Aloud Plays: Classic Short Stories, it includes parts for ten to fourteen actors and is appropriate for students in grades 4 through 9. It comes with teacher notes, comprehension activity, and answer key, and prints in my new, student-friendly format. Original purchaser is licensed to print one class set every year! Happy directing!
