The Powder Monkeys
Published by SchoolPlay Productions
Suggested Age Range: 11 upwards - best with a wide range. Running Time: 120 minutes + interval/s - Music : Based on contemporary pieces of the Napoleonic War and before; some solo; accompaniment ideally ten-piece orchestra but can be simplified. Set: Simple, versatile and fast-moving - to be rotated and/or converted by the cast as part of the action and sometimes the music. The setting varies from cricket field to quarter deck and from drawing room to open road but all should be portrayed symbolically and with minimum intrusion upon the acting area.
