by Alexa Romanes
Full Length Play / 10m, 15f
Alexa Romanes's play for young people traces the fortunes of the poorest of the human chain in Victorian London, from the mudlarks who scour the Thames mud for a pittance, to the crossing sweepers, costers and pickpockets. Into their midst comes a mysterious stranger, Sal, a maid-of-all-work from the country who is running from her Rotherhithe employer.
The unsentimental yet sensitive treatment of its large cast of well-drawn characters and its flexible casting opportunities make this a great choice for schools and youth groups. The age range is 11 to 16 for speaking parts, with numerous extra-opportunities for younger children. The songs, traditional and original, and dance routines can be performed by all the cast. The music is available separately.
