Product Description
Looking for an interactive way to confront online bullying at your school? To generate empathy in your students? To make them laugh? To delight an audience? Look no farther than The Conversation Club, a royalty-free, large-cast play based on the hit '80's movie, The Breakfast Club. It's the year 2029. Students no longer attend a traditional school, but instead learn at home via their computer. Without direct face-to-face contact though, students have lost the ability to have a conversation and online bullying is rampant. Five vastly different students must serve Saturday detention at a real school without their phones in the hopes that they will develop empathy for their victim. Over the course of the day, these students slowly develop the human connection again by rediscovering the art of conversation. Will it be enough to keep them from attacking each other behind the anonymous veil of their computers? Functioning as either a classroom reader's theater or a full stage production, The Conversation Club will springboard classes (and audiences) into discussions about technology, kindness, bullying, forgiveness and the lost art of conversation while delighting them with humorous dialogue, a wacky (or prophetic?) vision of the future, and something to chew on after the curtain closes. Adaptable with any anti-bullying curriculum and complete with questions for discussion or reflection, The Conversation Club is a great educational and entertainment tool for everyone from drama teachers to counselors to educators of all subject areas.
