Adapted from her award-winning book, Berlie Doherty's play examines the problems and feelings of two teenagers suddenly faced with unplanned pregnancy. It is part of the "Plays Plus" series. "Plays Plus" is a series of playscripts which deal with important contemporary issues. Much more than a script, each one provides resource material which gives a framework for exploring issues in the classroom. Stimulus material includes poems, photographs, fact lists and extracts which are combined with suggestions for written work, discussion, role plays and drama workshops.
Born in Knotty Ash, Liverpool, Berlie Doherty is the youngest of three children. She has been a social worker, a journalist, a teacher, and, for the past fifteen years, a writer.
Berlie has twice won the prestigious Carnegie Medal, for 'Grannie was a Buffer Girl' in 1987 and for 'Dear Nobody' in 1992. She lives in the Derbyshire Peak District.
