‘A wonderful play. My children certainly enjoyed singing all of the songs and when their was comedy, everyone laughed their hearts out! Great play, 5 stars.’
- Mr Dey, Tibshelf.
Whilst moving out of the house in which she has lived for 80 years, Edith Coleman discovers an old scrapbook from her childhood. The turn of every page rekindles memories of a time when war affected every aspect of her daily life. But despite the perils of the Blitz, evacuation, rations and bossy ARP wardens, we learn of how families and communities cared for and supported each other, found comfort and humour in their unusual circumstances, and ultimately triumphed in the face of adversity.
Whether you are looking for a rousing school musical to swell the hearts of your cast and audience, or a comprehensive curriculum resource that educates and entertains, ‘Edith’s Wartime Scrapbook’ is all you could wish for, and more!
Book and CD Pack includes full script with staging tips, a CD of vocal tracks, backing tracks, continuity music and sound effects and a piano score with voice line and guitar chords. The CD-ROM pack version replaces the wire-bound A4 book and includes the script and score in both PDF and MS Word files on the CD-ROM, allowing you to re-write or individualise the text, dialogue and lyrics to suit your needs and to print as many scripts as you require from your PC (the CD-ROM pack also includes an audio CD of music as with the Book and CD version).
