Kevin’s Story follows a day in the life of eight-year-old Kevin as he struggles to stay out of trouble. Kevin has to write about himself for homework, but can’t think of anything he does beyond upsetting everyone around him. He doesn’t play football, doesn’t draw. He’s no good at sums or spelling.
Although he is the hero of his own daydreams, Kevin accepts the judgement of adults and his peers that he is useless and a bit crazy. That is, until an encounter with an unconventional adult offers a glimpse of hope for Kevin.
A play for 6 – 10 year olds.
