The Siege A Play with Songs

Author: Adrian Mitchell Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/01/2006

The Siege was commissioned by schools from across the UK, when they decided that there was a noticeable lack of good plays for teenagers with a reasonable but not restricting cast size. The story follows the Swados Family, living in the city of Arden which is taken under siege by the neighbouring town of Dower. Some people turn to drugs, others to the church, others find their own ways of coping with daily life. Follow the struggle of the family and their fellow citizens in a play which has everything.
