About the Resource

Whistle As You Walk Away is a powerful, informative and moving play which dramatises the lives and times of Victorian children working in the cotton mills.
Viewed through the eyes of the young workers, we hear of their hardships and learn about the difficulties and dangers they faced each working day.
The play provides opportunities for children to develop mime and movement skills, and includes the musical scores and lyrics of original songs written for the performance.

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.
