Special announcement time!
I have recently been cast in a brand new musical adaptation of Ian Serrallier’s WW2 classic children’s novel ‘The Silver Sword’. We will be opening at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry (who are co-producing with Sell A Door) and we will be heading off around the UK on a short tour. It’s a great family friendly show with actors forming an Eastern European style band on stage, animal puppetry and yours truly giving her best stab at an RP accent, playing Ruth.
The official synopsis:
“Join Ruth, Edek and Bronia in this gripping tale of hope against all the odds – as they meet 14 year old Jan – who, years before, had been given the family’s precious Silver Sword by their father as proof he is alive. This is when the true adventure begins, crossing the paths of people from every nation and animals such as Jimpy the cockerel, Bistro the chimpanzee and Ludwig the dog.
Explore the way in which the Balicki family is torn apart by the Germans from their home in Warsaw, Poland, in 1940, and how they succeed in reuniting themselves in Switzerland at the end of the war. Will they reach Switzerland? Well they have the Silver Sword and that’s all the faith they need.
The Silver Sword was named as one of the top 50 children’s books of all time in The Times.”
