A great mini play set in 1940 that tells the story of one family’s experiences during an air raid in a fictional town. The play enables pupils to gain some insight into the lives of children at that time, and to learn some historical facts about life on the Home Front during World War 2. It takes approximately 15 minutes to perform, so is ideal for assemblies and WW2 topic days. The script includes full production notes, with ideas for staging, props, costumes and effects plus some great history, english and drama follow-on activities for further work in the classroom. It’s simple to read, with a cast of just 6, so will work well for small groups to read independently.
