Two Plays for Young People pocketEngelsk, 2009


Life isn't much fun for the two children trapped on Ward One of St Ruth's Hospital for Damaged Eyes in "The Flying Machine." But then a new boy arrives at the hospital and he is soon leading a revolt against Nurse Cakebread's hard regime. Armed with a set of blueprints and a cunning escape plan, he turns everything on the ward upside down. Full of laughs and action "The Flying Machine" is a play of heroic deeds, despicable schemes and acts of amazing bravery. In "Smashed Eggs" - winner of the Arts Council Children's Award in 2003 - Titus and Miranda are being driven crazy by their mum's ridiculous rules. She has a rule for everything: what to have for breakfast, what to wear when mopping and even a timetable for polishing wellingtons. One day, Miranda leads Titus on a journey which changes the way they look at the world forever. What would happen if they disobey mum?
