This drama game is part of a collection of 40 classic drama games found on Drama Notebook.

In this classic drama game, one student goes up in front of the class and assumes the role of a character or a famous person while the audience players interrogate him/her. The hot-seated actor must stay in character! This may be played as an history integration game, with real historical characters and students having to give accurate answers, or as a fictitious game during which actors may play any type of character and improvise their answers. The game may also be used as a rehearsal warm-up during which actors portray their characters from the play.
