After attending almost a whole term of drama lessons, and as stimulated by theÂ presentations by Environmentalists recently, I have got an idea of writing a dramaÂ based on energy conservation. Below are the details of my proposal for a drama onÂ this topic:Â IntroductionÂ With higher consumption of energy nowadays, people will not only haveÂ inadequate energy for use in the near future, but also suffer from adverseÂ consequences such as global warming. It is therefore crucial to teach the youngerÂ generation not to waste energy. I propose to do this through an interesting andÂ easy-to-understand drama targeted to all secondary school students so as to arise theirÂ awareness to the importance of environmental protection.Order now
Setting and charactersÂ I wish to do a drama with a fairy-like setting. The story happens in a countryÂ named Crystalia. Its name originated from a crystal pillar which generates electricityÂ for the whole country. There will be three main characters in the designed drama.Â There will be a plump and extravagant Emperor, who should be a bad guy wastingÂ resources in the country. He craves comfort and pleasure at the expense of theÂ citizens’ livelihood. Apart from the brutal Emperor, no doubt there will be a nice andÂ kind-hearted person, who is the Goddess of Crystal. She is the one who gives energyÂ to the country through the crystal pillar.
She is righteous as she stops providingÂ energy, seeing that the Emperor is wasting energy. The hero in the drama isÂ Robinhood. His father died during the construction of an awning, so he leads theÂ citizens to oppose the Emperor whose act threatens the citizens’ lives. He is brave andÂ patriotic, and he does everything for the sake of the citizens.Â PlotÂ The story is about energy crisis. The Emperor is tolerant of the hot weather.Â Therefore, he orders the citizens to build an awning covering his own castle in whichÂ air conditioning is operated 24-hours. With the awning over his place, he is happy thatÂ he can always enjoy comfortable temperatures.
Consuming too much energy onÂ non-stop air conditioning, there is a shortage of energy for the crystal pillar. TheÂ Emperor can no longer enjoy comfortable temperatures. Even worse, the terminationÂ of electricity supply leads to too high temperatures in the households, and some evenÂ die because of heatstroke. The Goddess and Robinhood thus come to the Emperor,Â threatens the Emperor that if he puts the lives of the citizens aside of everything, sheÂ will destroy the whole country by breaking the crystal pillar. Robinhood also tells theÂ Emperor about his father’s death and the poor livelihood of the people owning to hisÂ behaviour.
Not until this time the Emperor understands what he has done is aÂ catastrophe for all the people, and he deeply regrets about it. In the end, the EmperorÂ promises not to waste energy on his awning anymore.Â ConclusionÂ In is expected that after watching this drama, students will be more consciousÂ that energy is limited and will think twice before they use energy.
