DIGITAL ONLINE INTERACTIVE THEATRE
Turn your classroom into a detective’s office and solve the crazy case of Sweeney Todd.
In this fun re-imagining of the classic, Sweeney Todd is no longer a barber, but a hairdresser, and a punk hairdresser to boot. One day, one of his clients happens to be the Queen of England, and while he’s cutting her hair and changing her look… Wham! Todd inadvertently slits the throat of the Queen herself. Terrified, he agrees with Mrs. Lovett, the owner of the hot dog stand, to make the body disappear. But things get complicated when Shirley Holmes, the granddaughter of the legendary Sherlock, shows up at the hairdresser’s, accompanied by her assistant, Dr. Watson…
A delirious plot, full of absurd situations that make the audience laugh out loud, as well as a powerful rock soundtrack with rhythm and catchy lyrics.
The perfect play for teachers and students to enjoy the experience of theatre in English during the language learning process!

Death by Haircut is divided into 4 sessions or lesson plans that are structured around the 4 scenes that make up the theatrical performance. The online material is designed so that each session lasts the duration of a class, including a multitude of didactic exercises prior to the Death by Haircut video, karaoke songs and choreographies for Tik Tok and revision exercises. The interactive play is set in a mystery scenario in which the students, like real Sherlock Holmes, have to play the role of detectives while practising their English.
The pack is accompanied by a Teacher’s Pack so that teachers can adapt the itineraries and didactic resources included in the pack in a very simple way, adding additional material adapted to the age and level of English of the students.

A theatrical and graphic adventure where the students are the protagonists!
Enigmas, hidden clues, escape rooms… The interface of Death by Haircut conceals a real game of wit in which English is practised naturally, thanks to gamification techniques whereby the student progresses through levels as he or she advances in his or her investigation. The mystery and detective game is fun and motivating for teenagers and has been developed in line with Face 2 Face’s solid and ambitious pedagogical project for language teaching in its more than 20 years of history in Spain.
Each scene is carefully designed combining activities, games, videos, audios and review activities for fun, interactive and effective learning.
