The aim of the study is to investigate how the approach can increase students’ comprehension of the literary texts and also their motivation to learn literature. Twenty students from a premier school in Malaysia studied and staged Angela Wright’s Potato People, a Form Two literature text, using RT. The procedures and design of the study are built around Kolb’s (1984) Model of Experiential Learning. To compare the increase of comprehension and motivation, data on students’ literature learning was collected through different instruments throughout several stages. Before the use of RT, students were administered a pre-test, a questionnaire and an interview to gauge their comprehension and motivation towards literature learning.
