Monday's Child - A play for children
Monday's Child - A play for children
A simple poetic story of the unique bond between an old woman and a little girl. Together in a dream-like garden, they sing, dance and dress up as they explore a treasure trove of memories. This sensitive, imaginative yet funny story explores how we make and store memories as we grow up and discover the world; how these shape who we are, and how they help us meet the challenges of growing old.
