Synopsis

Plays for Young People by Charles Way

Playing for the Heart explores the struggle of young Evelyn Glennie to become a percussionist despite her profound deafness. Eye of the Storm offers young audiences a contemporary version of The Tempest, with the opportunity for disguises. Red Red Shoes uses the context of Eastern Europe to explore war, ethnic boundaries and the struggle for life and death through the contemporary reworking of an old myth.

Reviews

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...'

, 'STATE OF PLAY'
