Carrie's War

Nina Bawden (adapted by Emma Reeves)
 
When the Second World War air raids threaten their safety in the city, Carrie and her brother Nick are evacuated to a small Welsh village. But the countryside has dangers and adventures of its own - and a group of characters who will change Carrie's life for ever.

There's mean Mr Evans, who won't let the children eat meat; but there’s also kind Auntie Lou. There's brilliant young Albert Sandwich, another evacuee, and Mr Johnny, who speaks a language all of his own. Then there's Hepzibah Green, the witch at Druid’s Grove who makes perfect mince pies, and the ancient skull with its terrifying curse...

Emma Reeves has created a stunning stage adaptation of Nina Bawden’s much loved classic account of life as an evacuee in the 1940s. This edition includes teachers' notes and activities for classes based on the play.

Review
I doubt...anything will beat this traditional page-to-stage adaptation for ceaselessly involving telling of a cracking story - Evening Standard
