Children Of The Revolution

Drama Play Script: 'Children Of The Revolution' by Tom Casling

Playwright Tom Casling says:

"As a child I was fascinated with the story of 'The Prime Of Ms Jean Brodie' and the power and influence she had over (her) ‘girls’. As the story develops I could not but help think that as well as being a force for change Ms Jean Brodie also had a destructive influence on those girls. This play draws on that influence and recognises the power for change that young people have when they are fired up by an issue.

I have tried to capture a current issue and to explore the lives of young people today against those of children in the less developed world. At a time when labels, logos and image are everything the play explores through the lives of the young people ‘at what cost’ and what if anything we, as a society can do about this.

It also recognises that to bring about change there is often a cost, a cost that someone has to pay".

This is a play for six young people aged 14-17 and five adults of various ages. It is entirely fictitious and no allusion to any school and/or similar events is intended.
