First and Last Line

First and Last Line


Two people stand at either side of the stage. One is given the first line of a made up story and the other is given the last line. The lines should have a few specifics in them and should be totally unrelated. The job of the rest of the class is to slot in anywhere along that line and say a sentence that fills in a bit of the story. By the end, each person will have a added a sentence that means the story as a whole gets from the first to last line and makes a sense with no loose ends. They don’t need to go in order and we can hear the story so far at any point.
