Farm Boy: New Perspectives Theatre Company, Scamp Theatre Company
It sometimes felt as though time had stood still on the family farm – swallows nesting in the eaves, the old Fordson Tractor quietly rusting in the back of the barn, Grandpa still tending his chickens – that is, until the summer his grandson finished school and came to stay, and the old man started telling stories of what it had been like on the farm when he was a boy.
Michael Morpurgo's compelling sequel to the award-winning War Horse is a moving account of the changing face of the English countryside and a beautifully-crafted reminder that stories really can reach out across the generations.
Recommended for ages 7 and over.
'War Horse sequel ploughs a rich furrow ' (Daily Mail)
'A heart-warming tale' (Sunday Telegraph)
'Morpurgo is nothing if not a master story-teller' (Daily Telegraph)
'Absorbing and tender... Farm Boy revels in the power of a tale well told' (New York Time Out).
The East Midland’s leading touring theatre company.
