Scene in 2 Sentences



Split your group in half and form two lines facing eachother. Leave about ten feet between the groups as a playing space. One line is the “Set-up” line and the other is the “Receiving” line. The first persons job is to set up the scene in one sentence. They need to let the other person know as efficiently as possible who both people are and at least one other aspect to the situation such as where they are , what has just happened, what is about to happen , or what is happening now. The receiving person must support what the first person has said and add something to the scene. “Adding” to the scene means saying or showing us some result of what the first person has said. For example:

Set-up person: Dad, I can’t get out of this well!

Receiving person: Ok son, I’ll call a local news team.
