Realistic Scenario, Act III, Raisin in the Sun

After our discussion of A Raisin in the Sun, we will continue to work on our scenarios (due Monday, Dec. 14). During first period, continue the realistic scenario (1-3 pages) for a FULL LENGTH play (more than one act). As always, your scenario (if you chose to write the entire play) may change any details you create now. The purpose of a scenario is to provide you with a detailed outline from which you may find writing a play easier. This exercise is effectively brainstorming (the first stage of the writing process).

2nd period please check out Steel Magnolias by Robert Harling. To inspire you, here's a trailer for the movie.

After watching the trailer, get into groups of 6 and read the play.

HOMEWORK: For interested students who have watched the first two acts of "A Raisin in the Sun" here are the links for the rest of the play/film:

Act III, Part 11
Act III, Part 12
Act III, Part 13
Act III, Part 14

Your COMPLETED scenario is due on Monday. Please finish reading Steel Magnolias.
