Play Time

A collection of short plays suitable for children to read or act. Ten are for small casts, and the longer Persephone is for a whole class.

This collection of plays includes one of my favourites – Persephone, which is based on the Greek myth and is suitable for performance by a whole class of top juniors.
Here are some London schoolchildren acting Persephone in 2012.

The other ten plays range very simple stories like The Three Billy Goats Gruff through to the comic Top of the Mops which is suitable for top-junior and early-secondary actors. I was delighted when a school in China sent me some photos of a class performing one of the plays, The Wonderful Smells.
