Skellig by David Almond

Lehrerfortbildung mit Prof. Dr. Mechthild Hesse & Susanne Franz, Freiburg & Theateraufführungen der PH Playmates

This workshop will introduce teachers to the play Skellig, based on the novel by David Almond. Teachers will try out parts of the didactic material that they will be provided with.

The play Skellig is a teenage drama that challenges the limits of reality. Michael finds an old man in the cobweb- and junk-inundated garage of his family’s recently purchased house.  He feels sympathy with the old man and together with Mina, a liberal-minded, home-schooled new friend they take care of the man, who is almost dead. They feed him and take him to an old house, where he is safe. When they get to touch him, they feel that his shoulder blades are similar to wings and the question arises of the evolution, the close connection between humans, birds and the supernatural.
The play will be for grades 7-12. 7th and 8th graders will have to be introduced at school to be able to understand the play well.
