About the Resource

The Big Ship Sails is an emotional play about the British child migration scheme of the 1940s and 1950s.
Powerful as a performance, the play is an excellent resource for investigating real events of recent British history from the perspective of those involved. It also allows children the opportunity to include singing, mime and tableaux, and to perform in non-speaking roles.

About the Author
Alison Chaplin is a qualified drama teacher, a writer and an experienced youth theatre director. She mostly writes plays for children to read and perform. Because she is still a big kid herself, she likes to write plays which are funny. But she has also written some serious plays too. She doesn't really have a favourite play, although her Christmas play - The Xmas Factor - makes her laugh a lot.
She has written over 20 plays and enjoys hearing about them being performed, and what young actors liked about their performances.
When she’s not writing plays, Alison is the manager of Arts On The Move, a company providing lovely creative support for schools, actors, youth groups and drama practitioners.  
Alison's favourite colour is bright pink. Her favourite food is potatoes. Her favourite football team is Manchester City. She enjoys watching TV, reading and Zumba.
