Walking The Tightrope

by Mike Kenny

“Every year

Right at the end of summer

Just before the leaves turn brown and

fall from the trees

Esme comes to stay

With her Nanna and Grandad

Every year

Some things stay the same

And some things change.”

But this year Nanna is not there…and the circus has come to town.

A beautifully lyrical play about the special bond between children and their grandparents. Written by Mike Kenny (The Railway Children; Boy with a Suitcase), Walking the Tightrope was the first recipient of Arts Council England’s Award for Playwrighting for Children & Young People.
