Place is often a very important part of stories. Think about Harry Potter without Hogwarts, Lord of the Rings without Middle Earth or The Wizard of Oz without Oz.… They just wouldn’t be the same! Here are some questions you might use to help develop your story: How is the place unique? How do people feel about this place? What are the physical attributes of this place? Does this place have a special history? Has this place changed over time? What would you change about this place, if anything? What are people like in this place? Choose your words carefully so that your audience thinks about this place in a new way.
TWO WAYS to get the code that earns you 1,000 points!EITHER: send a word or pdf copy of your play's script,
OR: post 2-3 minutes of your play on YouTube(Email the attachment or YouTube url to: missionexploreCODE@gmail.com. Put "site a play"
and your explorer name in the subject line)
Tips: Think about where you choose to perform your play very carefully. How many people do you want to perform for? Is the place sheltered if it rains? Are there features in the place that you can make good use of?
Geography: Geography literally means “writing the earth,” so writing your script means that you are telling one of the many stories that make up the Earth. Look around you for inspiration. You could ask people who have lived in the place for longer than you to suggest things that you should be mentioning… or you could make up your very own history for the place. Literature is full of imaginary worlds from Alice in Wonderland to Where the Wild Things Are.
Risk overall: Medium. Keep your wits about you, anything could happen.
