Tin Soldier and Other Plays for Children

Adapted for the Stage by Noel Greig

Introduction by David Johnston

Tin Soldier (adapted from The Steadfast Tin Soldier by Hans Christian Anderson) | A Tasty Tale (Hansel and Gretel) | Hood in the Wood (Little Red Riding Hood)


A collection of three enchanting plays adapted from popular fairy tales and suitable for family audiences.

Acclaimed playwright Noel Greig, has recreated these well-known tales for the stage with wit and imagination. All three plays have been performed throughout the UK by Tangere Arts, winning a Time Out Critics’ Choice Award.

Teachers, youth theatres and amateur groups working with young performers will use this collection time and again for productions, drama classes and workshops – whether for one performer or many. Suitable for children aged 7+

The simple form and language of the plays belie their theatrical and psychological sophistication.
