Silent Guns

by Roger Watkins

1979

Age Advice: 9 - 13

Silent Guns was written by Roger Watkins for Theatre Centre in 1979. It was toured to schools for audiences aged 9 to 13 year olds.

This story is about treating people equally, with respect and empathy and understanding that their backgrounds do not define them. More specifically it is about a girl named Gina Fiontelli, who belonged to a circus family. She suffered at the hands of an ignorant boy who came to follow her from school, making sure that he oppressed her in any way he could. However, she soon found strength and taught him a lesson he’d never forget in front of a whole circus audience, by using her best talent; clownery and tricks!

"Leave off! Look I'm not a gypsy. Only half, I'm a traveller. Me Mum's dead and I live with me Dad and Gran. And I don't smell. And I don't play no violin. Anything else?"
