THE STORY OF JOSEPH
My latest play was performed by Hartfield CE Primary school in July 2011.
It is a completely new and original version of the well-known and well-loved bible story. Written entirely in rhyme, it covers Joseph's problems with his eleven brothers, his dreams, his brothers' attempt to kill him and their further decision to sell him in to slavery and Joseph's fluctuating fortunes as Governor of Egypt. His final reconciliation with his brothers and his father brings the show to an end.
The school had only 12 pupils in their final year so other parts were handled by younger pupils who also formed a choir to sing the songs. There are nine songs, some of which could be sung as solos, all of which are bright and fresh and new.
It was a stunning success and I was privileged to help the performance.
