No sooner were Play it by Ear back from performing at Autumn Soul than they were scripting a drama for the Methodist Newsletter. In ‘Two very different Christmases’, two characters share contrasting experiences of the Christmas season. It’s a humorous, challenging and easy-to-use piece, and readers will receive it in their December magazines in plenty of time to rehearse for a Christmas performance.
‘Play it by Ear’ aims to help churches use drama in worship. Under this umbrella, Chris Neilands and Ross Jonas offer free scripts and advice and take drama workshops. Working with a talented band of actors and ‘techies’, they make videos and perform at church events.
