Archibald’s War (2016)

Archibald Poster 2016

Lucy’s Grandma remembers 1939… A little girl, Maggie, clutches her precious teddy bear.  She’s being evacuated and it’s noisy, crowded and busy in the station.  Still, at least she’s got her teddy bear, Archibald!  Maggie and her brother Tom share a compartment with their friends: weepy Edith, and the loud, boisterous Baxters.  It’s a long journey, but the Guard is friendly and the children look after each other – when they’re not arguing!  Arriving in the countryside, the children wait to be picked by the host families.  Only then does Maggie realise she’s left Archibald on the train… As Lucy listens to her Grandma’s memories, she doesn’t guess the surprising ending to Archibald’s story.

AliCaT production of The Selfish Giant

The Selfish Giant (2009):

The Giant returns from his 7 year holiday with the Cornish Ogre to find children playing in his garden.  He builds a high wall to keep them out but the garden is then invaded by raucous characters that plague him.  Spring never returns and it is always winter until one day the giant meets a boy who needs his help.

“It is truly magical to see children (some of whom I thought prior to today were very short on confidence) performing so brilliantly and clearly really, really enjoying themselves and having enormous fun.  I think you are teaching the children skills that will be so invaluable during the course of their lives.  Thank you very, very much.”
