IMPROVISATION STORY GAMES

SAMPLE GAMES: IN A…WITH A…WHILE A… Free Drama Resources

Improvisation is a keystone to most drama games. Some games focus on story telling. The sample game In A..With A…While A… gets students to try and match three parts together to make a scene.

Others in this final section of Top 50 Drama Games Unpacked include Fairy Tale: In The Style Of, for a more modern take of a classic tale, Shared Story, which can go anywhere, Extra Extra Read All About It, basing scenes on newspaper snippets and the ever popular Death In A Minute.

IN A…WITH A…WHILE A…

BASIC DESCRIPTION

This is a simple act where the small group of players need to combine three elements to create a story. They are given these at the start “in a” classroom, “with a” cranky teacher, “while an” exam is taking place. They start with establishing the place and then add the other elements as the story progresses.

HELPFUL HINTS

To start with give the players a combination of three elements that blend together and make creating a scene a little easier. As they get better, mix up the elements. I have made a split book for this game as well. All the location options (in a) go in the top section, the character or object options (with a) go in the middle part, and the given circumstances (while a) fill the bottom section. Students flip pages and see which three they land on. You can cut out the options on the next page and put them in three containers for students to draw from. I allow a redraw if the combination is impossible but most work out a creative way to use all components.

LIST OF IDEAS

The location choices have been listed first. Beside these are two options to match for the “with a…” and in the same order on the next page are matching options for “while a” Therefore you can do well linked combinations if you want.
