STREET CHILD

Cottongrass Theatre Company

The gripping and exciting story of a Victorian orphan, surviving the dangerous and lonely streets of London, is brought to life in a visual feast of puppetry, projection and live action.

Based on Berlie Doherty's novel of the same name, this engaging and heart-breaking family show dramatises the stories and adventures of Jim Jarvis and his meeting with Dr Barnardo, who was later inspired to set up his famous Ragged Schools.

Street Child is enjoyed as a standard text in primary schools across the country, where it supports the Key Stage 2 curriculum. 5+
