If Assembly

If by Rudyard Kipling - this class play is based upon the famous poem, If.

Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down.

Duration - around 10 minutes not including music suggestions.

Unlikely as this may seem but this classic poem by Rudyard Kipling manages to bring together 20 readers and 8 rappers - along with one somewhat incredulous Narrator and poet!

This assembly includes both original material and ... well, who can argue that the rappers aren't themselves a pretty original lot - to say nothing of the material they produce!

If the language of the original If seems a little dated now, take heart from what can still be gleaned from it, in the right enthusiastic hands!

Sample Text

Rapper 4:            So I think it’s fair to say

Rapper 5:            It’s all a bit iffy!

(All rappers laugh)

Narrator:             Now, now people! A little respect for our great poet here, if you please!

Rapper 6:            Oh! Absolutely no disrespect intended, bro!

Rapper 7:            No, we were just making the point that none of what we are about to say is a given!

Narrator:             Pardon?

Rapper 8:            It’s all about making your own choices.

Rapper 1:            Nobody can make you good!

Rapper 2:            That has to come from you!

Rapper 3:            And that’s not always easy!

Rapper 4:            Take that first couple of lines

(Narrator points to Reader 1)

                        Reader 1:            If you can keep your head when all about you   

                            Are losing theirs and blaming it on you

Rapper 4:            Sound familiar?

Rapper 5:            In this crazy world where everything has to be ‘now’, how many people do you know who can stay calm under pressure?

Rapper 6:            And what about the next two lines?

(Narrator points to Reader 2)

                        Reader 2:            If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

                                        But make allowance for their doubting too;  

                       Rapper 6:            Wow! That is special! I think we’ll call that one, self-confidence!

(Narrator points to Reader 3)

Reader 3:            If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Rapper 7:            Let’s call that, patience!
