By Donna Latham
Hear a free audio preview of GRAPPLING WITH GRAMMAR: A COLLECTION OF TEN-MINUTE PLAYS
GRAPPLING WITH GRAMMAR offers innovative opportunities for young actors to rehearse and perform, while polishing English language skills. Join the Stratford family! They rise to the sticky-wicket challenge in this comic series by award-winning playwright Donna Latham. A tightly knit intergenerational family, the Stratfords are an energetic, verbally adept bunch. Together, they tackle familiar language conundrums
GRAPPLING WITH GRAMMAR features a cast of six. Jewel, an industrious teen, is a multitalented multi-tasker. She aspires to be the next J.K. Rowling and is currently scribbling a whodunit. Bill, her spontaneous younger brother, is up for anything. Thoroughly living in the moment, he’s consumed these days with teaching Roscoe, the world's most bashful parrot, to talk. They live with their young-at-heart grandparents. Gramps is a retired British brigadier general and lover of history and literature. He’s devoted to Gram, a nurturing soul who whips up new recipes in the kitchen. Add a lovable, loyal talking dog, Addie, to the mix, and the cast is complete.
Grappling With Grammar Shout-outs
“Grappling With Grammar is a delight! Innovative, humorous plays create opportunities to teach kids about adjectives and adverbs, comparatives, double negatives, idioms, onomatopoeia, oxymora, sentences, and more. Kids create memorable characters, hone their comic timing, and flex their acting muscles. They take language to heart.”
—C.A. Mauloff, High School English Teacher (retired)
“...An excellent resource that uses ten-minute plays to teach students the basic rules of the English language. Grappling with Grammar, written by Donna Latham, covers adjectives, pronouns, idioms, interjections, and my personal favorite: onomatopoeia. Like other useful drama resources, this series combines humor and characters with each lesson. Students will have fun during each rehearsal/performance, and they will improve their writing skills before they even pick up a pencil!”
—Wade Bradford, playwright and author
