Bond's The Children was written to be performed by a cast of young people, with two adult actors.MAT toured the play in 2004-5. In each venue on the tour, we worked with a group of young people, rehearsing the play with them; and at the end of the week, it was performed.


The production was directed by David Allen and Gill Adamson. Subsequently, David wrote an article, based on his experience of working on the play. Called 'The Children,' it is published in the book, Edward Bond and the Dramatic Child (available here).
