Performance Focus

Create a solo performance based on the character of either Ron Weasley or Hermione Granger.

In 2022, a prophecy reveals that another Time-Turner exists. Fearing that the Dark Lord is returning and knowing that the Time-Turner must be destroyed, a worried Ron and a determined Hermione attend an Extraordinary General Meeting in the Grand Meeting Room at the Ministry of Magic to urge the assembled wizards and witches into action.

He/she does this by:

  • recreating three or more moments demonstrating the events that occurred in 2017, when a Time-Turner was last found
  • creating how Ron or Hermione found out who has the Time-Turner mentioned in the prophecy and the ways in which this person intends to use it
  • comparing the Time-Turner with another ctional object of power that fell into the wrong hands.
