Welcome

Charles WayIf you have found this website it probably means that you are interested in theatre and in particular theatre for young people, children and their families and I bid you welcome.

Here you will find information about the plays I have been writing over the past thirty years, including plays for adults, adaptations and musicals. There are synopses of the plays and information about how to get hold of scripts, either for professional or for amateur use.

I have spent all my working life in the professional theatre and believe in its power to affect not only individual lives but also, and perhaps as a consequence of changing individuals, the very nature of our world.

Young people need theatre and all it can offer, both as participants and as audiences, more than ever. In the theatre one can reshape the world for a time and examine it from different points of view in a safe and socially cohesive environment.

2013 YouTube video of Charles Way talking about recent development work.

I try to create work that does not preach, that examines the pressures under which we live through story and metaphor, that is fun, sometimes dangerous, but always I trust, humane and hopeful.
