Brave New World | Role-Play


Role-Play between Mustapha Mond and the state

The government of Brave New World has been toppled by a group of inhabitants from the reservations who want to take their revenge for having been mistreated by the so-called civilized world. Mustapha Mond is arrested and put to trial.
1. Decide who wants to play whose role. You need Mustapha Mond, a prosecutor and a judge. If your group has more than three members you might want to introduce a witness or a lawyer who helps Mustapha Mond with his defence.
2. Take notes and play a scene in court when Mustapha Mond is defending himself against the prosecuter's accusations. Take into consideration what you have read about the government's motives for introducing soma and hypnopaedia and forbidding literature.
3. Practice your role-play and be ready to present your scene to your classmates.
