This gripping and exciting new play, adapted by Cotton Grass Theatre and Damselfly Arts, tells the story of Jim Jarvis, a true-life orphan who has to survive in the dangerous and lonely streets of Victorian London. It is brought to life in a visual feast of shadow theatre, music and storytelling, with a cast of three actors and life size puppets. Street Child is based on Berlie Doherty's novel of the same name. This engaging and poignant family show takes you on a journey through Jim's adventures to his eventual meeting with Dr Barnardo, who was later inspired to set up the famous ragged schools and children's homes.
Berlie Doherty is an award-winning writer novelist, who lives in the Peak District. She has twice won the Carnegie Medal for Literature and is the author of Granny was a Buffer Girl and Dear Nobody. Both books have been adapted for stage, TV and radio. Street Child is enjoyed in many schools across the country to support the Key Stage 2 curriculum topic, The Victorians.
