Synopsis

The Prompter by Chris D'Lacey

There's no way hyperactive Robin can play a part in the school production of Peter Pan. Or is there? For Robin's amazing memory gets him the job of prompter - and eventually a starring role that leads to a hilarious performance. A funny, delightful tale with appeal to all young thespians (and anyone else who would like to see their headmistress chased by a crocodile-)

Reviews

Touching and funny Leicester Mercury A lively story, some great characterisation, some colourful metaphors and lots of dialogue Junior
