National History Curriculum! Louisa's Walk for Primary Schools brings a convict woman's story to life in Strolling Theatre!

Louisa's Walk for Primary Schools is the Award Winning Louisa's Walk especially adapted for primary students. Starting at the bottom car park of the Cascade Gardens, this interactive strolling play takes students into the life of an impoverished Irish woman forced to steal a loaf of bread in London town 1840.

Students are involved in her arrest, conviction and transportation out on the ship The Rajah.

The play culminates in the Cascades Female Factory where her life is graphically portrayed.

Students are encouraged to dress in period clothing.

There is an opportunity afterwards for a question and answer session with the knowledgeable actors.

Affordable rates you may bring up to two classes at once.
