Abstract:

An anthology of selected plays for young audiences. Many consider Max Bush to be the fountain-head of the renaissance in playwriting for young audiences. His sensitivity to current themes and the modern idiom infuses a contemporary appeal into all of his works. His poetic and muscular style of writing pushes aside the sugary breakfast cereal approach to children's theatre. His many uses of modern drama techniques serve to grab and hold the attention of young audiences. The ten full-length plays in this book are adaptations of classics, heroic fantasy adventures and drama dealing with social and psychological issues for youngsters. Plays include: Ghost of the River House; Hansel and Gretel, the Little Brother and the Little Sister; The Emerald Circle; Puss in Boots; 13 Bells of Boglewood; The Crystal; The Boy Who Left Home to Find Out About the Shivers; Rockway Cafe; Rapunzel; Voyage of the Dragonfly.
