Description

Mugged is an exciting play for pupils at KS3/4, focusing on issues that are both gripping and relevant to young people. It is accompanied by stimulating background materials containing fantastic ideas for drama exercises, as well as further activites to answer English Framework and NC objectives.

Every morning, a group of teenagers meet up on their way to school and hang out on the benches in the park. And every morning they are faced with the same dilemma: take the short cut across the park and risk running into the muggers, or go the long way round and risk being late…

Reviews
  • “This new series of plays commissioned by National Theatre Education, in editions containing excellent resources and activities, is long overdue.”Ink Pellet
  • “It has amusing, almost Beckett-like stage directions and very funny banter between two key characters, Marky and Dig. This text would make an excellent school production, but also lends itself to exploration in a drama studio at KS3.”The Secondary English Magazine
