FOR P1 - P3 PUPILS
All the Little Gentleman wants is a friend…
A friend he can sit in the sun with and listen to the birds
A friend to walk with and share his cookies
But nobody seems to like the Little Gentleman and nobody wants to be his friend.
The Little Gentleman thinks he will live a sad and lonely life forever… Until one day he is woken up by a curious dog who just wants to play.
The Story of the Little Gentleman is presented by two actors with very few words. The Gentleman’s initial feelings of alienation and loneliness shift when he finds company. What is friendship and how do you make friends?
