The children performed Chapter 10 - Lame Betsy. With our main character, Jim Jarvis in high spirits and on a quest to find his long lost sisters after escaping the workhouse, he finally finds the house with the bird cage and shoe scraper and is elated about his imminent reunion. Unfortunately, when he knocks at the door, he is met by a rather rude and ungracious young girl who tells him to shoo away…His sisters had been discovered by his Lordship and were thrown out.
In this chapter, emotions are raw. This provided the children with the opportunity to get dramatic and use their own interpretations to express the characters they were playing.
With a few simple props, we saw performances worthy of BAFTA nominations!
“We don’t give to beggars,” the girl said.
