A topical collection of new plays by popular UK playwright Nick Wood
'I am not a lone voice, I am many.' Malala****Yousafzai
A Girl with a Book and Other Plays brings together four plays for young people by acclaimed playwright Nick Wood. Topical and wide-ranging, they concern refugees, friendship, loss and courage.
'You know those sente**nces that start I'm not sexist/racist/homophobic and the speaker sticks in the word 'but' and goes on to prove that's exactly what they are?'
The title play, A Girl with a Book is an honest response to the story of Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by the Taliban. Produced many times in Germany and the UK, the play raises serious questions about the West's complex relationship with and attitudes to the Muslim world.
'a journey into empathy and imagination...' Stephen Lowe
'...invites us to better understand Malala, her father, and her kinsmen.' On Religion
'...a journey into empathy and imagination coolly and cleanly done. A crucially important tale well told with great humanity.'Stephen Lowe, playwright
'...there's plenty of scope here for schools, colleges and youth theatre groups. The title play... has a cast of one... The remaining three plays use larger casts and explore asylum seeking, friendship, loss and courage.' Susan Elkin, The Stage
