The Little Wee Martian


  • Drámadóir

    Brenda Winter 

  • Nótaí

    This play was written to form the core of a week long theatre residency in special schools. Aimed at young people with disabilities studying at Key Stage 2 level of the UK curriculum (usually 8-11 years), the play explored the need for independence and fear of the unknown.

  • Achoimre

    On a mission to Mars, Commander Space Cadet finds a Wee Martian and decides to bring him back to earth. On re-entry the spaceship crash-lands, and the Wee Martian lands in the Wrights' garden in the North of Ireland. There, though he makes friends with the birds and things of the garden, he is terribly homesick and Sergeant Wright, who has become his friend, agrees to try and return him to Mars. Protecting him from NASA, who want to experiment on the Wee Martian, she teams up with Space Cadet and together with the audience, they come up with a plan to send the Wee Martian home.
