With full permission from the Cookson Estate, this is the official adaptation of her novel The Cinder Path.
This is a perfect script for amateur companies up and down the country to get their teeth into – and casting is incredibly versatile.
The smallest cast size is only 4M, 4F, with those eight actors playing a multitude of roles.
However, the full cast of characters in the play is 19M, 10F. So any amount of doubling within those numbers is possible.
NB: This script is currently optioned for a professional UK tour in Feb 2022 starring Nick Cochrane, and is not currently available. Please keep an eye on this website for further announcements.
