Emil and the Detectives! By Erich Kastner
Who spotted Million Binyam from Stockwell Park strutting her stuff on stage in Emil and the Detectives?
Carl Miller’s adaption of the story of Emil being robbed by Mr Snow is clear about the stigma attached to poverty, and being poor. Set in 1920’s Germany against a background of rigid authoritarianism and conformity, the play explores the relationship of child to adult authority, the perceived dangers of the Big City and the relationship between parent and child.
Pretty sure that Million could have brought her own views to the story!
Kids from here…doing well… soon up for the Oscars… Stockwell Park nurtures champions!
