Last year we wrote a play for this group about a Roman holiday and this year they requested we write another. The theme was Archives and Libraries. So Ruth and I put on our thinking caps: earlier in the year the Dunedin Children's Library celebrated its centenary, and thus we had a beginning.
Centered around a little old lady called Miss Children's Library, the play involved many beloved characters who would call on Miss Library and interact with each other. We had Christopher Robin, Dorothy with Scarecrow, Mary Lennox, Tom Sawyer, Anne of Green Gables and Harry Potter.
It was well received and produced much laughter, especially when Tom Sawyer fell in love with Anne of Green Gables, and she in turn made him cry! Then Harry Potter came to Anne's rescue, sure his friend Hermione could cure her of her carrot hair and freckles.
