“These scripts will give students the opportunity to confidently practise language in a safe and structured setting where they can enjoy playing roles and bringing the story to life. … they’ll be having so much fun that they won’t even realise that they are learning!”
—David Farmer, NILE training consultant, theatre director, and author, Learning Through Drama and 101 Drama Games and Activities

Dedicated careerwoman, Lola, thrills her family when she brings home a boyfriend. But when they meet him, they realize something is wrong with Mr. Right. This engaging and suspenseful comedy will get students talking about how we choose our partners and how well they should get along with our family. However, this play was written for English students to improve their communication and speaking skills.
Introducing Rob contains 5 characters, 5 scenes, about 15 minutes to perform. The script is graded to A2+/B1 (intermediate) level.
As students read, practice, and perform these plays, they will learn:
- communication in cultural contexts
- conversational moves, such as sharing feelings and expressing empathy
