Who is Martha?

Martha lives by the sea…
Martha lives alone…
Martha doesn’t need anyone…

She is stubborn, eccentric and highly independent.

Who are Martha’s friends?

Not her next door neighbour.
Not her helpful postman.
Nor her secret admirer from across the bay.

One day she has an unexpected visitor and for Martha life will never be the same again.

A range of resources are available to schools for Martha at www.theatreinschoolsscotland.com
