Abstract: Drama is a very strong instrument in the hands of playwrights. This medium has always served and still serves the functions of educating, correcting, instructing, organizing and commenting on issues that bother on human existence. This study adopts drama as pedagogy for the teaching and learning of girl-child. To demonstrate this however, the paper carries out a diachronic assessment of Tor lorapuu’s Had I Known as a committed drama text that empowers the girl-child. The paper justifies its argument through the adoption of Paulo Freire's “pedagogy of the oppressed” and Augusto Boal's “Theatre of the oppressed and forum Theatre” respectively as its theoretical framework. The two theories provides a ground for the discourse by making its stand point very clear that indeed, dramatic overtures of this kind has the potential of redefining the society and bringing to limelight and understanding of what live and healthy living connotes. A conclusionis drawn from the discourse and few recommendations are made so as to have a well-defined society that has the interest of her girl-child at heart if truly and religiously adopted for implementation.
