Publisher Description

100 Meters – An EFL/ESL play about a girl who overcame disability, poverty and racism to become the fastest woman in the world.

This is the story of Wilma Rudolph, whom they called the "Black Gazelle". At seven years old, she caught Polio and could no longer walk. But Wilma wanted to play basketball and that is what she did. She eventually became an athlete, winning three Olympic gold medals and breaking a world record at just 20 years old!

Written in clear US English at Level CEFR A2, 100 Meters is ideal for lower intermediate English learners and above, aged seven and upwards. Perfect for ESL classroom readings or student productions, the play emphasizes particular language features and grammar structures in each scene. A Teaching Pack is available to download, offering over 15 hours of classroom activities.

First written and premiered in 1992 for the occasion of the Barcelona Olympic Games, 100 Meters was performed over 200 times in Catalonia, Spain. Theater productions were also mounted in Argentina (1995) and the Canary Islands, Spain (2000) to great acclaim. Thirty years later, publication now makes this play available to English language students and English-teaching theater-in-education companies worldwide.

This edition is adapted to US English. A UK edition is also available.
