Become a Friend

The Story of the Little Gentleman


The Story of the Little Gentleman

Based on the book by Barbro Lindgren

Age suitability: 5+ or Primary 1-4
Running time: 45 minutes

“Will you be my friend?”

All the Little Gentleman wants is a friend…
A friend he can sit in the sun with and listen to the birds
A friend to walk with and share his cookies
But nobody seems to like the Little Gentleman and nobody wants to be his friend.

The Little Gentleman thinks he will live a sad and lonely life forever… Until one day he is woken up by a curious dog who just wants to play.

An energetic two-hander with an original score by Danny Krass and design by Karen Tennent, this is a playful celebration of friendship and acceptance.

The Story of the Little Gentleman is suitable for P1-3.
