The Crossroads

by Brian Way


Age Advice: 5-11

The Crossroads was first produced by Theatre Centre in 1960. It was written and directed by the author and toured throughout the Brisish Isles for a year.

The themes of this play are serious themes: world peace, the struggles of the little man to survive against the forces that surround him, and the more usual triumphing of good over evil. The scene is a cross roads and is a friendly enough looking place: innocent and quiet, with no sign of trouble.
