(A car drives up to the hill and stops.  MUM, DAD the LITTLE BOY and the LITTLE GIRL get out. They get out with their picnic basket)

FATHER: (pointing to the hill) What a lovely place for a picnic!

All of you must have a character list and layout your dialogue correctly

e.g. FATHER: What a lovely place for a picnic.

Most of you should have a character list and layout your dialogue correctly. You should also include stage directions describing the scene and what the characters are doing.

e.g. FATHER: (pointing to the hill) What a lovely place for a picnic!

Some of you could use all the features we have learnt about as well as include stage directions for extras (actors who don’t have words to speak).


NEED MORE HELP: Watch the video on this website to remind you how to layout a playscript.

Edit your work.

  • Have you laid out your script correctly?
  • Are character names in capital letters?
  • Are the things the actors do in brackets ()?

Most of you should check for all the punctuation you know so far (such as commas and exclamation marks) and look out for spelling rules such as change the ‘y’ to ‘i’ and add -es.

Some of could think about your choice of vocabulary improve your choices.
