Remembrance Day School Assembly or Class Play
Remembrance Day School Assembly or Class Play is a very short script dedicated to those who lost their lives in the first world war and all wars since.
Please note: The script is available in word document format on the purchase of the Performing Rights Certificate. The scripts remain free of performance rights for staging in the classroom but as an assembly, in front of a non-paying audience, you need to buy a single Performance Rights Certificate to cover you for the play you are purchasing.
Cast size: 30; Duration 5 – 10 minutes.
Now also available – an extended version of this script entitled First World War Poets Assembly; and a First World War Assembly identifying the causes and progress of World War One.
