9780003302349: The Granny Project (Collins Drama)

Anne Fine’s story of how one family looks after their aging grandmother. The book contains a sensitive and funy playscript suitable for classwork and school production, accompanied by resources including background material and lively activities.

When Natasha and Henry decide to put Granny into a home, their four children Nicholas, Tanya, Ivan and Sophie start up a major protest. Nicholas and Tanya begin a series of tantrums and nightmares about Granny going away, while Evan and Sophie write the devastating ‘Granny Project’: a full account of their grandmother’s life for a social science project at school. Their parents finally give in and announce that Granny can stay – on the condition that all the nursing and caring must be done by the children themselves!
