“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 biscuits with.
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.
