Hermit Crab

 I invented a new form today. 

We first create a "hermit crab" for our play. It is a pre-existing structure like an oral exam, a job interview... We also have premise: time travel, mistaken identity, fantastical transformation... 

person a] writes 10 questions

b] writes 10 questions

c]  answers b's questions

We pair c's answers with a's questions, or with a combination of the two sets of questions. 

Now we write stage directions and a title, and perform our work. My students are doing this right as we speak. I will let you know how it turned out.
