—David Farmer, author of 101 Drama Games and Activities

Strange Medicine is an original short play for students about a mysterious scientist doing secretive research while renting a guesthouse from a family. This suspenseful play hits on an important theme: how is truth decided in science?

Written for ESL and EFL students to improve their communication and speaking skills, our short plays for students are used in ELA classes, drama clubs, elective classes, and in theater education, too!

The plays are perfect for pronunciation practice, Readers Theatre, or a full-production.

In addition to the short script, inside you'll find:

  • a preview activity to introduce the theme
  • a pragmatics lesson about changing the subject politely
  • tips on pronunciation and reading lines fluently
  • guidance on doing a play in class
  • a glossary of key theater terms

There's nothing like a play to practice natural spoke English so get dramatic in the classroom. In a good way.

Strange Medicine contains 5 characters, 8 scenes, and takes about 20 minutes to perform. The script is graded to A2+/B1 (intermediate) level.
