Whistle As You Walk Away

by Alison Chaplin

Whistle As You Walk Away is a powerful, informative and moving play which dramatises the lives and times of Victorian children working in the cotton mills. Viewed through the eyes of the young workers, we hear of their hardships and learn about the difficulties and dangers they faced each working day. The play provides opportunities for children to develop mime and movement skills, and includes the musical scores and lyrics of original songs written for the performance.
