It's a standing joke how many times we've heard "I hate roleplay", only to receive feedback back that "working with the actors was the best part". One of the most familiar Theatre-Led Learning (TLL) tools, roleplay is ‘based on real-life’ but learners step safely into a scenario or character created by our scriptwriters. The framework scenes are written to reflect real behavioural challenges or bring out hot-button issues. We draw on client stakeholder interviews, in-house surveys, focus group feedback, and business/HR stories to frame workplace conversations ranging from client sales meetings to managing under-performance or tackling transformation. Complexity in the brief varies according to the learning objectives.
