Example of a drama game:
Three players, six feet apart, in a row downstage, standing as if they are inside payphones (phone boxes). Each player chooses a character and a scenario and begins a one-sided conversation that is barely audible. The leader chooses one player who suddenly becomes loud enough to be heard. The leader continues to direct students to raise or lower their voices at random giving the audience the experience of listening in on a variety of conversations. This game is great for helping actors to develop focus and to stay in character, as they must keep their conversation going while another actor has the scene.
