Ms. Lindsay Price is visiting Ridley College this week to work with the grade 12 English students as they began to write their own original one act plays. Ms. Price is a published playwright herself and so who better to help put these fledgling writers through their paces as they explore what it is like to “write for the stage.” The students are working on warmup exercises, the idea of character, conflict and setting. It is no doubt that Ms. Price’s advice and experience will help the students to produce some interesting and entertaining scenes later this month. The finished scripts will be recorded as “radio plays” and the best will soon be featured on Ridley Radio – https://www.ridleycollege.com/podium/default.aspx?t=130683&rc=1 . Writing in this “dramatic mode” is probably new to some of our students, and I’m sure that it is a challenge that they will no doubt embrace whole-heartedly.
