Plays by A.J. Alexander (pen name of Richard Hawley)

 

A well-written play for children to perform is hard to come by.

 

I have worked with children for nearly 20 years and written lots of plays for children to perform. I now have a selection of these plays available for preparatory, primary schools and theatre schools.

 

These are tried and tested, having been performed by children aged 7-13 years.  Children helped to mould and shape the final play available here and so directors/teachers will find them accessible and know they are child approved!
