The Lost Child, by Mike Kenny, focuses on the Tinker, a wise old man with a vast knowledge of the world he lives in. We are introduced to the Tinker walking through the forest with his daughter Rowan, a curious but naïve child. As they travel, the Tinker is educating his daughter on the world around them and warns her against creatures in the forest that will do her wrong if they have the chance.
The play is a rich source of education for young people aged 3 to 10, and tackles social situations such as trust, friendship and responsibility as well as promoting an understanding of nature and the environment. The colourful and exciting characters help the Tinker by showing what friendship means and the importance of trust.
