Synopsis

Plays for Young People Red, Red Shoes , Eye of the Storm , Playing from the Heart by Charles Way

Red Red Shoes is a modern adaptation of the fairytale set in Bosnia, and England, involving dance and drama. The heroine struggles to find her identity following the trauma of war. Eye of the Storm is a modern retelling of The Tempest exploring the father/daughter relationship and attitudes to gender. Playing from the Heart portrays the trials of the young Evelyn Glennie to become a percussionist, despite her profound deafness. This is an opportunity for movement, music and text to be combined in performance. This book is intended for age 8 and over.

Playing from the Heart: 'An inspirational piece of children's theatre

'Teenagers all over the country have been enjoying this witty, perceptive and enormously entertaining play... capturing the eternal struggle of youngsters to grow up and fly the nest, parents to protect them form the big, bad world.'

'...his plays are complex, subtle, elusive, metaphorical, mythic, magical... and the essential art of storytelling is at the core...'
