Oxford Playscripts: Solace of the Road by Siobhan Dowd, Mike Kenny

Holly Hogan is on the run. Fed up of life in foster care and longing to be reunited with her mum, she packs a bag and heads for the road, destined for Ireland. With only her mum's amber ring, a blonde wig and distant memories of a troubled childhood, Holly transforms herself into the feisty Solace the kind of girl who can take on anything. But just how far will Holly get before her past catches up with her? Solace of the Road features a detailed scheme of work including a range of inspiring activities and drama techniques, written by title consultants Paul Bunyan and Ruth Moore.
