«Оливер»: Hello, my friends! I hope you have recognized me! Yes, you are not mistaken. I am Oliver Twist, one of the world- known book characters, created by Charles Dickens. Well, you see, both people and books have their birthdays. This year we are going to celebrate the 175th anniversary of my favourite novel “ The Adventures of Oliver Twist”. To begin with, I would like to check whether you have already read this book or not. So, my dears, be ready to answer my questions!
( « Оливер» задает вопросы по содержанию романа)
The first question: What was the reason of sending me to the coffin maker bureau?
( Possible answer: The life in the workhouse was full of misery. You and your companions were always hungry. One day you, Oliver, were so desperate with hunger that you came up to the master, your bowl and spoon in hand, and said:” Please, sir. I want some more.”)
The second question: One day I got into a fight with Mr. Sowerberry’s senior apprentice. After that I decided to seek for my fortune in London. What’s happened to me in London?
( The possible answer: You met there a boy whose name was Jack Dawkins but among Jack’s friends he was better known as the Artful Dodger. You suspected that one, who had such a name , hardly could be an honest person. However, you were very thankful to the boy for the nice food. More than that, you did not know anybody in London and you did not have any place to sleep, so you went with this Artful Dodger.)
The third question: What kind of person was Fagin?
(The possible answer: Fagin, a very old villainous –looking man, wanted you to become a pickpocket. At first you thought Fagin must be a miser because he lived in a dirty poor place but with so many valuable things. It turned out he was in charge of the thieves’ lair.)
The fourth question: What was Monks’s aim?
( The possible answer: As it turned out Monks was your stepbrother who tried to disinherit you!)
The fifth question: Who helped me much?
(The possible answer: Nancy helped you very much. It was Nancy who warned you of Fagin and Sikes’s plan to kill you.)
The sixth question: What happened to Monks?
(The possible answer: Monks had to resign all hope about the inheritance , he moved to America where he died in one of the prisons.)
«Оливер»: Well, my dear friends, I like the way you answered my questions. And now I know that all of you have read the novel. By the way, my Literature Father , Charles Dickens , was stage -struck. My benefactor, Mr. Brownlow, and I are going to show you a small scene from the chapter “ Oliver’s stay at Mr. Brownlow. Oliver goes out on an errand”.
( Появляется еще один студент, который исполняет роль Мистера Браунлоу. Разыгрывается сценка.)
Mr. Brownlow: There are a good many books, are there not, my boy?
Oliver: A great number, Sir! I never saw so many.
Mr. Brownlow: You shall read them , if you behave well and you will like that. Would you like to grow up a clever man, and write books, eh ?
Oliver: I think, I would rather read them , Sir!
Mr. Brownlow: What? Wouldn’t you like to be a book-writer?
Oliver: I think it would be a much better thing to be a bookseller!
( Mr. Brownlow laughs heartily)
Mr. Brownlow: Well, well, don’t be afraid! We won’t make an author of you, while there’s an honest trade to be learnt! Now, I want you to pay great attention , my boy, to what I am going to say. I am sure you are well able to understand me, as many older persons would be.
Oliver: Oh, don’t tell you are going to send me away, Sir, pray! Don’t turn me out of doors to wander in the streets again! Let me stay here, and be a servant. Don’t send me back to the wretched place I came from. Have mercy upon a poor boy, Sir!
Mr. Brownlow: My dear child, you need not be afraid of my deserting you , unless you give me cause.
Oliver: I never, never will, Sir!
Mr.Brownlow: I hope not. I do not think you ever will. I have been deceived before, by people who were dear to me, but I trust you, nevertheless. The persons, whom I loved, lie deep in their graves; but although the happiness and delight of my life lie buried there too, I have not made a coffin of my heart. Let me hear your story, where you came from; who brought you up; and how you got into the company in which I found you. Speak the truth, and you shall not be friendless while I am alive.
( Конец инсценировки.)
Оливер: Good advice from Mr. Brownlow: “ Don’t make a coffin of your hearts!” Now I would like to make two teams. I think the first team will be called “ Ladies” and the second one- “ Gentlemen”. Well, this novel has become so famous that people began to use some sentences from the book like quotations! The first task is called: “ Quotations from Oliver”
Task 1. “ Quotations from Oliver”
“ I have decided that if my world can’t be yours, I will make your world mine!”
“ Every man is a friend for himself. And such a good friend is nowhere to be found”.
“ Where friendship is wrecked, hatred forces its way!”
“ There are the books , the most valuable things of which are back and cover.”
“ All painters always draw ladies more beautiful than in reality , otherwise, they wouldn’t have any clients.”
“ We are actors in life, but not the passive spectators, that’s the most essential difference.”
