An emotional one act play script about the British Child Migration Scheme of the 1940s and 1950s. This was a scheme that saw tens of thousands of children - some orphans, many not - 'exported' from Britain to colony countries around the world. The play is created from actual stories of the children and adults involved. It is a powerful piece of theatre for students to perform and works well as an ensemble piece for a large group.
Cast size: 30-40 students
Running time: approx. 50 minutes
Most suitable for Grades 3 - 6
The script also provides students with the opportunity to include singing, mime and tableaux in the performance.
