ALIEN RESEARCH – FUNNY PLAY FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL
In a Galaxy far far away, on Planet Varney, some time in the future… Captain Skirt from the Alien Research Unit has just returned from his journey to Planet Earth. Earth was abandoned by its population some time ago, after all the trees were destroyed, and life was no longer sustainable. A colony of people from Earth is now living on a planet called ‘Vif’. Captain Skirt has returned from his mission with an interesting discovery: Books! In order to study the contents of the books that he has brought, the Head of the Alien research unit brings each book to life. They reveal fascinating information about the ‘aliens’ and what life was like on Planet Earth. A funny play for primary school with a big cast.
