About the Resource

A fast paced, hard edged play that has its roots in the real story of Ivan Mishukov, a Russian boy, who was abandoned at the age of four and lived with stray dogs on the streets of Russia. Using storytelling technique as its principle style the play fits perfectly with Edexcel’s ‘Everybody has a story to tell’ brief for GCSE Drama Unit 3. Equally suitable for AQA Unit 2 Acting option.

A host of eccentric, comedic characters as well as an exciting use of chorus allow access for all but also stretches the most able so that they can reach the very top ‘outstanding’ band. The play is also suitable for BTEC Level 2/3 and also makes an excellent piece for an older Youth Theatre performance or for adults.

A thought provoking and entertaining play that packs a real punch, it can be cast flexibly for a group of 5 - 9 actors with adjustable running times from 25 - 45 minutes.

Included are:

- The script

- Teacher's Guide with casting grids for any combination of actors between 5 and 9.

- Original music (which is playing now).
