Max, a ten year old, has an unshakeable belief in his guardian angel - Rodge. He also seeks
to fulfil his dream - to fly! Meanwhile, the dreaded Sibbert brothers pursue him relentlessly,
threatening to rip his arm off and beat him with the soggy end! It is a light-hearted play
but raises the issues of bullying and loneliness as well as asking whether we should be
afraid to be an individual and stand up for what we believe in. After all, haven't we all
wanted a friend like Rodge?
