How To Be A Kid

How To Be A Kid

by Sarah McDonald-Hughes

Winner - Best Play for Young Audiences, Writers' Guild Awards 2018

Warning: Contains dancing, chocolate cake and an epic car chase.

Molly cooks. Molly does the dishes. Molly gets her little brother Joe ready for school. Molly is only twelve, but she doesn’t feel much like a kid any more.

Now her mum is feeling better, maybe things will get back to normal. Maybe Molly can learn to be a kid again.

A touching and funny story of family, friends and fitting in, How To Be A Kid is ideal for seven- to eleven-year-olds to watch, read and perform. It was first produced in 2017 by Paines Plough in their pop-up theatre, Roundabout, in a co-production with Theatr Clywd and the Orange Tree Theatre.
