Tom Finn and The Windmill is a musical play for Key Stage 2 children set in World War One. It tells the story of Tom Finn, a teenager working at the Windmill, who dreams of a life of adventure and glory but finds only the bloody battlefield of The Somme. Written to commemorate the centenary of the battle, the play is in the form of a long poem so that children might be able to remember their lines more easily. It is a poignant tale with a number of songs to support the stage action. It includes the script, CD including backing tracks and full performance rights for your school.
