Playscripts based on the Trial of Wilf Wolf

In literacy over the past three weeks we have been looking at a range of playscripts. One playscript the children particularly enjoyed was The Trial of Wilf Wolf in which the traditional tale of Little Red Riding Hood is given a fresh twist. The children decided to write their own playscripts based on famous fairy tales. Her are the first two from Simon and Joe with more to come early next week.

Wilf Wolf

(chavvy voice) Tanks mate, I was delivering Granny Mays K.F.C, with extra ketchup…

Person1

(interrupting) Ha.

Person2

I bet he’s going to blame the ketchup for the blood.

Person3

I bid £5.00 on that wolf rug

Wilf Wolf

(Getting back to the point) I delivered the chicken drum sticks but Granny May wanted me to cut it up.

Mr Freeman

So did you cut it up?

Wilf Wolf

Yeh but you see I was kind of wondering why would you cut up chicken drum sticks, anyways with paws its hard to cut stuff so I made a big mess,  it went all over the walls.

Person 1

(whispering) He’s lying.

Person2

I call guilty.

Person3

I like bananas.

Mr Freeman

So why did you sleep in her bed?

Wilf Wolf

(embarrassed) Well you see I forgot to tell you I was about to close up for the night but I suddenly got a call from Granny May at about midnight so I was really tired, and that’s why I went to bed.

Mr Freeman

(Walking over to Wilf Wolf) why didn’t you go home.

Wilf Wolf

Cause I live like half an hour away and I don’t have a car.

Mr Freeman

(confused) So why did you go there in the first place.

Wilf Wolf

Cos I’m nice unlike you court people blaming me for what I didn’t do.

Judge

(Slamming down his hammer) silence in court. I declare Wilf Wolf innocent.

George’s playscript

Judge: Master Jack, you are called here guilty for knocking over Mr and Mrs Ogre’s castle with a beanstalk.
Person 1: I bet you he’s guilty.
Person2: Look at the face he’s making, he’s obviously guilty.
Person 3: I wonder if he likes brussel sprouts.
Mr Ogre: (Bellowing) well I was just getting into bed when I herd this giant rumble. At first I thought it was a bit of thunder. Suddenly the thing hit my house and turned it over, my bed which is three times heavier than me landed on top of me……. And it hurt.
Person 1: That bed must’ve been huge and dreadfully heavy.
Person 2: I don’t doubt you.
Person 3: I wonder what colour his PJs are.
  (Turning to Jack)
Judge: Is this true Jack? Did you turn over Mr Ogre’s castle with a bean stalk?
Jack: (talking casually )Yes I did turn over but not on purpose. You see there was this old man who gave me three beans ,I didn’t relies they were magic at the time, he told me to plant them ten metres away from my front door. So I did.
Judge: (looking thoughtful)  Did this man have a long wispy beard?
Jack: Yes.
Judge: And did this man have one green eye and one……
Jack: (interrupting)  And one blue eye and three fingers on his left hand?
Judge: Yes. This man is a dangerous plastic doll who is out for revenge on lots of people…………. Mr Ogre have you seen and done anything to this man.
Mr Ogre: Yes a few weeks ago he came onto my land to sell me a load old garbage as I didn’t want any I threw him and his garbage off my land.
Person 1: DANGEROUS!!!!
Person 2: WE’ER ALL GOING TO DIE!!!
Person 3: I like dolls to play with, so does my granddaughter.
Judge:

 

Mr Ogre don’t you think he might have been getting revenge on you? As you say you did throw him off cloud 400,000,500,000 metres from the ground.
Mr Ogre: (thinking) Mmmmmm…….. Well why didn’t he do it him self.
Judge: Maybe because he didn’t want to get in trouble.
  (Phone goes off.)
Judge: (picking up the phone) Who is it…
