Striding for Success

About The Play

A play about Enterprise

Suitable for year 7

This comical half hour play and workshop covers all aspects of enterprise and social enterprise training for pupils, including:

  • Having a good idea
  • Being prepared to work hard
  • Perseverance
  • Thinking of different ideas if the first one fails
  • That you can be enterprising as an employee not just when you own your own business
  • Identifying your own and your peers’ strengths and weaknesses
  • That team work is as important as having individual skills

Using dramatic narrative and song, the play explores the highs and lows of starting your own business through the eyes of three pupils. Each character using their individual skills and personalities strives to make it work. But it is only those with the idea, plus the drive and determination to make it work that succeed. This play is fun and accessible.
