Drama for Real Life

A Book by

Emerging drama ministries face a daunting challenge: to give voice to the unvoiced anxieties and uncertainties of people coming of age in a complex world. These feelings and doubts are difficult to express in words, but they can be sketched out in the action and tension of drama.
  • Love and Marriage
  • Job and Vocation
  • Faith and Doubt
  • Morality and Ethics
  • Temptation and Desire
  • Life and Death
These are the challenges we face in the crossroads of our lives. You won't find answers in the sketches that portray them (leave that to the preachers), but you will find truth. An award-winning storyteller and accomplished author, Steven James presents sixteen scripts for use by drama ministries in church or on campus. Designed for ease of use, Drama for Real Life features
  • simple settings--easy to manage for beginning directors
  • no more than five actors per sketch--easy to cast
  • time frames less than ten minutes each--easy to fit within a worship setting
  • insights geared toward directors, writers and actors
With pastoral sensitivity and artful authenticity, Drama for Real Life shows us what truth looks like in the real world.
