Casting Light: Scripts for young adults from people living with mental illness

Are you a teacher or student of secondary English or Drama looking for challenging, dynamic scripts? Excellent scripts that are downloadable and free? Do I have the collection for you!

This year marks ten years since the launch of Casting Light. This was a visionary project of Mental Illness Education ACT. I was engaged to run a series of drama and writing workshops over a twelve-month period, and to write scripts based on the life stories of the participants or to mentor the participants in the writing of their own scripts.

The result is an authentic, innovative collection of 13 scripts that come with support materials and links to further resources and information. Interested? Click here for the PDF of Casting Light.
