The Come From Away Religious Studies Education Pack is intentionally designed to be a flexible teaching tool for teachers and facilitators of Religious Studies.
The guide can be explored in its entirety for this subject, or in a selected series of learning opportunities in conjunction with the Cross Curricula Teaching Pack for English, Drama, PSHE, Geography and History.
The guide is broken up into five lessons. All but one of the lessons can be used before or after seeing the show. The fifth lesson is an evaluation and reflection lesson after seeing the production.
Use the corresponding Student Background Pack to equip your classes with the context and information surrounding the events of this important time in history.
Suitable for: KS3, KS4, KS5
Subjects: Religious Studies
This resource was created by Come From Away, in collaboration with The ArtsLink, TDF Education Department, La Jolla Playhouse and Seattle Repertory Theatre.
Winner of 4 Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical, Come From Away has taken the West End by storm.
Playing to nightly standing ovations at London’s Phoenix Theatre, Come From Away also continues sold-out, record-breaking engagements on Broadway, across the USA, in Canada, and in Australia.
This joyous new musical shares the incredible real-life story of the 7,000 air passengers from all over the world who were grounded in Canada during the wake of 9/11, and the small Newfoundland community that invited these ‘come from aways’ into their lives.
As uneasiness turned into trust and music soared into the night, gratitude grew into friendships and their stories became a celebration of hope, humanity, and unity.
Awarded the Tony® for Best Direction of a Musical, Christopher Ashley’s production guides audiences through a colourful and spirited cast of characters, brought to life by Tony® and Grammy® nominated writing team Irene Sankoff and David Hein.
