Day Twenty-Four, Play Twenty-Four

“Let’s write a play in a different language.
Some of you may know another language, and some might have to make it up!
Either way, make it work, but most importantly, make it interesting for an English speaking audience (Regardless of what language it’s written in).

Bonus – have a surprise ending! Surprise yourself. Get to the end and then do something you didn’t expect. A surprise”

This came from rolling my story dice, coming up with a number of components, then working them into a British Sign Language version of The Tortoise and the Hare.

Now, how do you write in BSL? Technically I didn’t, I wrote lines that could be easily signed and would, in my opinion, translate nicely to BSL on stage for a younger audience.

The whole thing was inspired by a beautiful production of Shakespeare’s Love Labour lost in BSL. So I tried to write with that in mind..!

Enjoy!
