The Dutiful Daughter £7.99

The Dutiful Daughter

The Dutiful Daughter £7.99

A group of troublesome actors arrive in a modern city. They tell the story of Ke Xin, princess of the Isle of Joy, who is always obedient until the day the sea brings to her island home a strange sailor, a raving fool without a memory, a man who will challenge everything she believes in.

A timeless tale of love, power and transformation that explores many of the key issues faced by young people today.

Charles Way began writing plays in 1978 when he joined Leeds Playhouse TIE team. He has written over 40 plays, many of them for young people. His plays Sleeping Beauty and The Search for Odysseus were both nominated as Best Children's Play by the Writer's Guild with A Spell of Cold Weather winning the award in 1996. Charles has written many plays for radio, and a TV poem for BBC2, No Borders, set on the Welsh borders, where he lives and has spent most of his creative life.
