Synopsis

Private Peaceful With Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp and the Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Michael, M. B. E. Morpurgo, Philip Pullman, Jill Tomlinson

This title presents three rites of passage plays for the young person in all of us, brilliantly adapted from the books of three best-selling authors. In Michael Morpurgo's moving tale of youth cut short, seventeen year-old Tommo Peaceful relives his innocent rural past as he spends his last night in the trenches of World War One. In Philip Pullman's Aladdin , this ancient magical tale is retold as a story of ambition and self-advancement, a young man's journey from lazy good-for-nothing to great wealth and power. And in Jill Tomlinson's delightfully witty classic, a fledgling Barn Owl conquers his fears through a series of eye-opening encounters. These plays are for all ages.

Reviews
