Play 1 Tudor Explorers
Speakers: Christopher Columbus, John Cabot , Martin Frobisher

Drake: Hmm. Now, let's think. What did Columbus, Frobisher and Cabot all have in common?
Could it be the illusive North-west passage?
Chancellor: How right you are! They all went to their deathbeds believing they had found Asia!
Magellan: Whereas they had actually stumbled upon the east coast of America!

Speakers: Sir Francis Drake, Captain Thomas Doughty
Sailor 1, 2, 3, 4

Play 4: Anglo-Spanish Hostilities - Introduction to Slavery
Link with PSHCE Unit 5: Living in a Diverse World , looking at origins of slave trade - starting point for discussion on racial prejudice
Speakers: Sir Francis Drake, Queen Elizabeth 1st, King Phillip II (of Spain), Sir John Hawkins, Slave, Sailor
Slave: Or the Mr. Innocence. It's really not at all convincing. Not to anybody who had the dubious pleasure of being a ‘ship mate' on board one of your slave galleys.
Sailor: Conditions were bad enough for us plain sailors!
Slave: Nothing, I can assure you, could compare with what we endured. We were treated
worse than animals, and millions of us died en route.
Play 5: The Slave
Speakers: John Hawkins, Slave, Martin Luther King, White American Child (Maisie), Black American Child (Joel), Teacher
Martin Luther King:
According to slave codes, slaves were not allowed to learn to read and write, carry weapons, meet in groups or move about without permission.
Joel: So I guess we're back to where we started - talking about that weird definition of equality in the Declaration of Independence.
Teacher: What an amazing story! What a long way we have come since those dark days.
Martin Luther King:
Yes, but we should not become complacent. Racism is sadly not a thing of the past - there are still people who have prejudiced views.
