Zero to Hero
Four short plays for young people by Andrew Liddell
Each of these individual plays tells the story of an important figure in the history of Christianity. They were written for 11/12 year olds but could be performed by older age groups and in some cases require older actors.
“Pillar to Post” chronicles St Paul’s conversion and his subsequent travels. “The Shamrock”, “Trust a Bear” and “Kissing the Leper” relate the important events in the lives of St Patrick, St Columban and St Francis.
Lively and easy to present, each play is ideal for school or youth groups as, apart from the main characters, there are endless opportunities for non-speaking roles. Varied casts and running times but most of the plays last about 15 – 20 minutes.
