Looking for your next  production? You could be among the first to stage the show which could well be the next “Joseph”!

Friend or Foe The Musical is a lively and engaging adaption of the story by Michael Morpurgo OBE, author of War Horse, and has been written by Ruth Lusby-Yentis and Tim Brewster. The show is written for a 7-16 year old children’s cast, with or without supporting adults. There's also a Junior edition, adapted for performance entirely by 7-11 year olds, to allow children studying the book in school to bring the story to life themselves.

At the height of the Blitz, two London schoolboys are evacuated to Devon. Their new life in the country is turned upside down when a German bomber crashes on the moor. After a failed search by the Home Guard, the boys set out on their own to find the plane…

Michael with Tim and Ruth"I'm so excited about the prospect of this production of Friend or Foe. I can't wait to see it on the stage. There are some great songs, and the adaptation is both inventive and inspired. It's been a book, a film, a play, and now a musical. How wonderful and lucky is that!"
