Lizards Tale

Introduction

Domestic abuse results from people failing to establish positive relationships. The ability to create successful relationships is learned very early and educational establishments are an important part of children’s experience in forming and developing them.

The play tells the story of Cal, a fourteen-year-old boy embroiled in the problems of his parents’ abusive relationship. Lizard’s Tale is not only about abuse and, in relating Cal’s narrative in his coastal home, deals with a range of topics relating to young peoples’ common experiences, such as:

  • Bullying;
  • Separation;
  • Loss;
  • Friendship;
  • Love.
