Introduction

Our drama performance was based on the dangers of peer pressure and drugs. Our group consisted of 5 actors, Rees (who played Damien), Amy (who played Steph), Cassie (who played Tara), Matt (who played Steve) and myself (who played Megan). We tried to make our performance as believable as possible, and tried hard to make the audience become part of our play. We used only three sets but all three were on the stage at all times: Megan's bedroom, the bus stop (outside), and the school grounds.

Conclusion

The hit and run scene was very difficult to perform as we had no way of actually running Steve over so instead we used flashing lights and the car sounds again and screaming from Tara, Steph, Megan and Steve.
