Tony Stowers is an author, playwright, actor and teacher who was born in North East England in 1963 and now lives somewhere in North West France. This collection, two of four volumes, features theatre plays for schools and family audiences and theatre companies with low budgets. “Harry’s Dream” (1997) was written as a response to help children respond to intimidation and violence in schools. It tells the story of bullied Harry who meets an alien called Venus who crash lands on Earth on her way to school and, while helping her fix her engine, learns a few tricks to help him cope. “My Brother Jake” (1997), aimed at teenage audiences, is the story of teenage Jake who betrays the trust of his younger brother and their single Mum by secretly dealing drugs. “Scars” (1998) commissioned by Durham County Council to address vandalism issues amongst young people, tells a story based on a real-life incident. “Eddie” (1999) is a reflective look back at the accomplishments of ordinary working people against the backdrop of the wider world during the twentieth century. “Cyrano” (1999) is a comedy re-vamp of both Edmond Rostand’s original “Cyrano de Bergerac” and Steve Martin’s film “Roxanne”, updated and relocated to a small Northern English town in the 1990’s. Each play comes with notes and original publicity, where possible.
