Scarecrow First presented in 2010
by Theatr Powys

synopsis:
A warm and deliciously funny new play
In a tumbledown cottage, half swallowed by the trees creeping over ruined walls jutting like broken teeth.  A forgotten place, haunt of rooks in the morning.  Quiet though. Peaceful.

It was Wynne’s place.  Her refuge - where she took her ten-year old self and the things in her head for some piece of mind in the quiet.

Until, that is, she rescued him - Scarecrow.  In bits he was, the stuffing knocked out, so Wynne pulled him together and fixed him up.   She even made him a new face with eyes and a smile.  And that’s when all the threads started coming together.

Scarecrow is about being young and making sense, about finding friendship and the search for family.
