This is one of twelve titles for 2002, from the Spirals range for reluctant readers. They contain dynamic plots and storylines, engaging themes, attractive cover designs and short but substantial chapters to give a sense of achievement in reading whole texts. The clearly laid out text without illustrations and activities encourages a focus on reading and enables low achievers to improve at their own pace. This play is a shocking, old-time drama about two greedy villains, a damsel in distress and a dashing hero. Will the bad guys get their comeuppance and will the good guys live happily ever after? It is a play for four parts.
