Time and Region: 1333, northeast England

Grades: 6-12, adults

Cast: 4 (Two main actors as the parents.)

Performance Time: 5 minutes

WHERE IS “The Great Siege” USED?

  • History classes as reader’s theatre
  • English classes when discussing choices
  • Middle Ages fairs and events
  • Choral music with drama concerts
  • Drama showcases

This is a fabulous skit that I've used many times that is based on a play written in the 1700s.

Check out "The Battle of Halidon Hill" which follows this skit. Even if you don't use it, the background information included is extensive and relates to this story.

Teachers are saying...

✎“As a drama teacher, I liked using this scene because actors have to portray two versions of the same story – which is challenging. But I can easily see this used in an English class when the topic is times when parents (or others) have to make choices no one should have to make. This was a successful scene and I highly recommend it to others.” – Amazon customer
