The Tin Soldier Retold
Read our plot here!
In this play, we mostly deal with the notion of ‘anti-values' Our experience in children’s theatre, and the harsh reality of our time when negative attitudes are increasingly commonplace, have persuaded us of the importance of discussing this concept as a means of creating awareness, sparking off debate during which children are able to reach a conclusion as to the truly important values to follow in life.
Some of the values this story is based are: friendship, generosity, gratitude, self-control,
sensitivity, perseverance, punctuality, thankfulness, sympathy, simplicity, prudence, honesty, skillfulness, solidarity, forgiveness, loyalty, family, control, fairness, discretion, affection, frankness, understanding, compassion, responsibility, empathy, patience.
These values are either implied or are embedded into the story.
