Hi David
Rock Nativity is still popular. I first performed it with my youth group in 1983 now some 33 years later I am producing it for my daughter's youth group and I still remember most of the words (mind you I can't remember what I did yesterday).Keep up the good work all the best Gary

David Wood Monday, 27 June 2016 15:23
Thanks, Gary, for your message. I’m delighted to hear that you are producing ROCK NATIVITY. It is rewarding to know that the show is still performed and is still popular!

Tony Hatch and I keep in touch and meet up from time to time. We have not given up hope of a major professional production of ROCK NATIVITY being put on, but it’s not easy! One of the reasons why, perhaps, the show never received a West End outing, is that the title can be a bit of a problem. Some people are put off by the word ‘rock’ and other people are put off by the word ‘nativity’! We had originally wanted to call it FOLLOW THE STAR, but were gazumped by another writing team!

You may know that some years ago Weinbergers, the publishers, issued a demo CD featuring members of the National Youth Music Theatre. Sheridan Smith was in the chorus! If you don’t have a copy, and would like one, contact Weinbergers and ask for one!

All good wishes and good luck for the show.

can i download these plays to use in school plays

David Wood Monday, 27 June 2016 15:12
Thanks, Tashi for your message.

My plays are published and licensed mainly by Samuel French Ltd – []

I think you are writing from outside the UK. You may have a Samuel French agent in your area, to whom you could talk.

The plays do need a licence and do command a small royalty per performance.

All good wishes,

Mr. Wood,
I am interested in perusing your play "Goodnight, Mr. Tom" in hopes of using it as our middle school main stage play this coming school year. I am having trouble finding who holds the North American rights. Can you help?

David Wood Monday, 27 June 2016 15:32
Thanks, Lauren, for your message. Apologies for the delay. GOODNIGHT MISTER TOM is published by Samuel French, and the American branch of the company, Samuel French Inc. are looking after the rights. However, I don’t know whether I have actually signed a contract to this effect, so the Samuel French staff in New York might not yet have information.

I will forward this message to Amy Marsh at Samuel French Inc. in the hope that she will help you.

All good wishes,

Hello David.
I was one of the child extras in Aladdin performed at Queen a Theatre in Hornchurch in 1980.. I have vague memories of some sort of f the songs in that show but wondered if there is anywhere I could access them to hear the again, that you are aware of?
Thank you

Dear David
I teach drama at Dudley College and about 10 years ago I came across you wonderful 'Save the Human' and used it as an engaging and challenging piece for a group of special needs learners. I cut down the script to make it manageable and it was very successful and enjoyable in-class project. The themes of the play are more relevant than ever and it came to mind when considering a Community Arts Project for Level 2 learners to perform. Have you done any rewrites or amendments in the intervening years?

David Wood Tuesday, 8 March 2016 15:26
Thanks, Andrew. Delighted to hear that you like SAVE THE HUMAN. I was always rather proud of this play, which sadly didn't get much attention after the original production, which I directed for the Cambridge Theatre company and then for my own Whirligig Theatre.

I will reply more fully to you, in answer to your question.

All good wishes.

Hi David, am I right in thinking you used to be on Playaway on the BBC? I used to like that programme with Brian Cant etc.
Kind regards, Richard.

David Wood Thursday, 25 February 2016 11:38
Thanks, Richard, for your message. Yes, indeed, I was a semi-regular on PLAY AWAY for several years back in the 70s! Brian Cant and Toni Arthur were the regulars, but several of us used to come in and out each series, people like Julie Stevens, Chloe Ashcroft, Floella Benjamin (all regulars on PLAY SCHOOL) plus occasional one-off visits from Julie Covington, Jeremy Irons and Tony Robinson. Music was, of course, provided by the wonderful Jonathan Cohen, along with Spike on bass and Alan on drums. The programmes were a joy to do, and they often started on BBC2, later to be shown on BBC1.

So pleased you remember ...

All good wishes.

Dear David,

On behalf of the family I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for the wonderful books we received today, the girls are just delighted with them, as am I, made all the more special by you signing them. My daughter can't wait to Take them to show and tell in the morning. I have to say between her coming home, homework and bedtime we have already done THREE performances of Cinderella, she was a great Cinderella but her star turn was the ugly sisters! I have to say though the whole show was rather stolen by my one year olds performance of a mouse, his squeaking along side his siblings was adorable and that he could join in was real special. Thank you so much for giving me this wonderful evening with my children. I have no doubt I will be sending for some more of your books and plays very soon.

The best of wishes to you
Kate x

David Wood Monday, 1 February 2016 10:54
Thanks, Kate.

Delighted the books have gone down well!

All good wishes to you and your family.

Best, David.

Why won't they release Jackanory: The Hobbit on DVD?

I loved it - even though I was 17 at the time! It was the perfect way of de-stressing after a day at school studying for my Maths, Physics and Chemistry A-Levels!

Please persuade Aunty Beeb to release this marvellous piece of televisual history into the wild.

David Wood Monday, 25 January 2016 12:20
Thanks, Karol, for your message.

I agree with you! It would be great if the JACKANORY Hobbit could come out on DVD. But it took decades for it to come out as a CD! I think the reason was that the Tolkien Estate felt that there were too many versions of The Hobbit on the market, and refused the BBC permission to release it – as a video in those days!

Another possibility, of course, is that the BBC wiped it. Many programmes around that time were lost, because they were saving on recording tape! However, I suspect that is not the case with The Hobbit, because the audio content on the CD sounds very fresh, and was presumably taken off the original video tapes ...

Maybe you could write to the BBC!

The programmes (ten of them) were lovely to do. We recorded them at the old Lime Grove Studios. We were in a studio next to the GRANDSTAND Studio, where Des Lynham was introducing live the Saturday afternoon programme. In our lunch break Bernard Cribbins and I crept in to watch, and were tempted to interrupt the broadcast!! But we were too law-abiding!

Incidentally, I hope you passed your A-levels and that watching JACKANORY was never blamed for low grades!

All good wishes.

Hi David
I can't find any mention on your website about The Owl and the Pussycat in Edinburgh in 1974 or 1975. I know I saw it and loved it. I took a 6 year old boy who went on to become a professional playwright!Can you confirm I am not imagining this!

Carolyn Spice

David Wood Monday, 18 January 2016 10:33
Thanks, Carolyn for your message. Delighted to hear that you remember with pleasure THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT WENT TO SEE...

The play was first performed in 1968, and first seen in London in 1969. In the early 70’s, Cameron Mackintosh and I toured the play a couple of times, and I feel sure that it was one of these tours that came to Edinburgh in 1974 or 1975. There is the possibility that the play was performed by a local company at, say, the Churchill Theatre, or even that the Lyceum produced it as a Christmas show. But I’m afraid I don’t have records of every single touring date or production going back that far!

In 2018, the play will be celebrating its 50th anniversary! I’m hoping that we might be able to mount a production to coincide! Over the years the play has been performed in nearly all the repertory/regional theatres of the UK, and a very nice album was released by Philips in the early 1970s, featuring Harry Secombe as the Quangle Wangle, Roy Castle as the Owl and Hattie Jacques as the Pussycat! I was lucky enough to play the Turkey! All the tracks are available now on iTunes.

I was delighted to hear that the young person you took to see the play went on to become a professional playwright!

All good wishes.

David, I was 18 when I picked up your book "Writing for Children" on a trip to New York city. Nearly 12 years later, I am getting my MFA in playwriting, and have tried my best to write good plays for children, both to see and perform in. I have learned so much from your teachings, and the productions of the plays I have seen. Thank you for sharing your wisdom and words. If there was endless time, I would love to pick your brain and ask you all the questions that have boiled up in me over the years as I try to focus on becoming a excellent storyteller for children. But knowing your time is limited, I just want to send my enormous thanks for your remarkable and innovative example.

David Wood Tuesday, 19 January 2016 10:50
Thanks so much, Katherine, for your message.

Delighted to hear that my book has been helpful, and I wish you the very best for all you do now and in the years ahead.

Meanwhile, give my best wishes to Seattle and, if you are in touch with them, Seattle Children’s Theatre. I see that Linda Hartzell is leaving, which will be the end of an era!

Thanks again for taking the trouble to write.

All good wishes.

Dear David,

I am writing to you to seek your advice please, but first I must say I have been directed to you by my lovely Aunt who is an ex English and Drama teacher (college years but she certainly knew your work and you were the first name out of her lips!) and wow, I feel very ashamed that I am not familiar with your work and how much you have written, so I truly apologise as I really don't know how I have missed you.

I am a mother of three children but only one of school age (currently 6), I'm sure your aware they go to school later in Scotland. My daughter is currently in P2 and was recently tested in school along with the other children on their maths and English skills using an external test, and I'm pleased to say she did very well. When we were given the results they came with recommendations for furthering her development in each subject and one of the recommendations for my daughter was to expand her reading by giving her more plays, poems, fiction and non-fiction to read. We have lots of poetry/nursery rhyme books and with two girls we have LOT'S of the classic fairy tale story books, we also are big fans of Juliia Donaldson, but we have limited non-fiction and NO plays!!! This has lead me to you (via my Aunt!) and now I have been on your site I'm not sure where to start or what quite to do hence my request for your help.

I would really like to purchase some plays but am not sure which ones to start with? My daughter loves to read and asked for books for her Christmas, she now also likes to read the bedtime story to us so they need to be something she could manage, obviously with my help also if needs be. They will be for reading in the home, mainly me and my daughter at first but as the younger children start to learn to read we can all be involved as a family. As I'm unfamiliar with your work I'm not sure if there are some smaller pieces to get us started or should I stick to a familiar classic i.e. Cinderella (I would like at least one to be one of your originals) or should I start with a book and a play? I notice you do a book with a few plays in you can see I'm in a bit of a quandary and so look to you for some guidance! Any recommendations you can give me on where to start our David Wood adventure would be greatly appreciated please. I do apologise for the long winded message but look forward to your response and to getting started.

Very best wishes

David Wood Tuesday, 19 January 2016 10:46
Thanks, Kate, for your e-mail. I would suggest you look at three plays of mine published by Big Cat, the educational part of HarperCollins. These plays are written in rhyme, and introduce the idea of different characters speaking. They are CINDERELLA (ISBN No. 978-0-00-733618-0), THE PORRIDGE PINCHER (ISBN No. 978-0-00-746208-7) and JACK AND THE BAKED BEANSTALK (ISBN. No. 978-0-00-722875-1).

Your daughter may be a little young for Roald Dahl, but you might look at my four Puffin papaerback books that contain playlets adapted from my full-length adaptations of THE BFG (ISBN No. 978-0-140-36367-8), THE TWITS (ISBN No. 0-14-131596-2), THE WITCHES (ISBN No. 978-0-141-31084-8) and DANNY THE CHAMPION OF THE WORLD (ISBN No. 978-0-141-32376-3).

If you fancy introducing your daughter to some of my full-length plays, I would suggest THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT WENT TO SEE... (Samuel French ISBN No. 0-573-05027-9). This could be read in conjunction with Edward Lear’s verses and stories, upon which the play is based, using lots of other Lear characters. And THE GINGERBREAD MAN (Samuel French ISBN No. 0-573-05042-2).

THE GINGERBREAD MAN was originally written as a play (the Samuel French edition, as above), but is also available as a storybook and two DVDs from the television animation series.

Most of the items above will be available via Amazon, but I can also supply them. If you want details of cost, including postage, just let me know.

All good wishes.

Dear David,

Thank you for sending me a copy of Mole's Bedtime Story last week.

The book first came to my attention many years ago when I worked in a library in my late teens. It was the most popular book for younger children that we had and it was always returned with positive comments from parents.

I bought a copy for my nephew a few years later and he always enjoyed the story.

Moving forward a number of years and I now have my own child. It was time to have a copy of the book back in the family.

Mole arrived last week and we have read the story many times. My three year old has already memorised many of the words and will 'read' the adventure himself.

It is with delight to say 'thank you' for the pleasure I have experienced and witnessed from Mole's tale. I think some of the other slot tales will be making their way to us this year.

Kind Regards,


David Wood Wednesday, 8 April 2015 17:08
Thanks, Nicola, for your very kind and encouraging message! MOLE'S BEDTIME STORY was indeed quite successful when it was originally published. Later on, Richard Fowler provided new illustrations and the book was republished. Richard and I had hoped that the character of Mole could be developed further, with counting books, colouring books, activity books etc., as well as more stories, but we only managed to produce three! The original plus MOLE'S SUMMER STORY (still available) and MOLE'S WINTER STORY (sadly no longer in print).

However, our other three pop-in-the-slot books are still available, FUNNY BUNNY'S MAGIC SHOW, SCARY MARY and SILLY SPIDER. Hopefully they will give pleasure to you and your child in due course!

All good wishes.

Dear David Wood

Firstly, thank you for the enormous joy you have given to generations. I took my son, (now mid 30s) to see The Gingerbread Man in London, when he was about 5/6 and we all loved it. We bought the tape of the songs at the theatre - and it was a favourite for long journeys for years. We were all word perfect!
I now have a granddaughter, and have made sure she knows the story. I have also been looking without success, to find those songs, on CD. I did find a cartoon video, and bought it with much excitement - she loves it - but where are those wonderful, brilliant songs?
I'd be so grateful if you could help.

with best wishes

Vanessa G

David Wood Tuesday, 17 March 2015 09:57
Thanks, Vanessa, for your message. Delighted to hear that THE GINGERBREAD MAN is fondly remembered by you and your family!

The cassette of the songs, with Bernard Cribbins doing the narration, is still available. I will send you a separate e-mail giving details of how to buy it.

I quite understand that you might not have the facility to play a cassette any more! Sadly, it has not been possible to produce a CD version for various copyright reasons.

However, you can hear all the songs on my website. Go into the SIGHTS & SOUNDS section, click on THE GINGERBREAD MAN and off you go!

All good wishes.

I have just found myself singing the theme to The Plotters of Cabbage Patch Corner this evening. As I only saw this once, as a small child in the early 70s in Twickenham, I thought you might like to know what an amazing impression it obviously made. I loved the performance, and I also remember you in the audience with us (I may well be mistaken). Anyway, thank you for such an abiding memory

David Wood Thursday, 12 March 2015 10:58
Thanks, Helen, for your lovely message! Delighted that PLOTTERS made an impression on you! This play means a lot to me, because it was the first original, as opposed to adapted, children's play I wrote. The first production was at the Swan Theatre, Worcester in 1970. Alison Steadman played Greenfly. The play was directed by Mick Hughes, who later became one of the country's finest lighting designers. He was a pretty good director, too! The following year, the play was presented at the Shaw Theatre, London for a Christmas season, directed by Jonathan Lynn, who later found fame as the co-writer of YES MINISTER. Julia McKenzie played Ladybird. In 1979, PLOTTERS became the first ever touring production of Whirligig Theatre, the children's theatre company I co-ran for 25 years. The play is still performed quite a lot in schools and by amateur groups. It is done quite a bit in Germany, too, because it has a green theme, which they rather like!

Thank you for bringing back all sorts of memories!

All good wishes.

Dear David, I've just discovered your website! I played Professor Paperback in our Primary School production in 1978!! I wanted to know what inspired you to write the themes in this fascinating play?? I so enjoyed being in this play as it gave me the opportunity of feeling part of a wonderful, exciting & moving story ! Thank you so much for bringing imagination in to the lives of children. All the best Leigh.

David Wood Tuesday, 24 February 2015 09:52
Thank you, Leigh, for your kind message. Delighted to hear that you are a former Professor Paperback! THE PAPERTOWN PAPERCHASE was one of the plays I wrote for the Swan Theatre, Worcester, which was where I worked as an actor in repertory and also got my first chance to write plays for children.

The original spark came when I was on holiday in Menorca. Across the valley was a restaurant called the SALAMANDER. The sign was visible from the villa! It made me curious to find out more about the creature that apparently could live in fire!

The idea developed into an imagined conflict between the Land of Fire and the Land of Paper. Two opposites. The idea of a town made of paper and populated by paper people soon followed!

I suppose that the storyline was partly influenced by BEAUTY AND THE BEAST. The Salamander kidnaps Tishoo, rather like the Beast keeps Beauty prisoner.

The original production at Worcester was directed by the splendid Giles Block, whose recent book about acting in Shakespeare was shortlisted for a theatre book award presented by the Society for Theatre Research.

Some years after the Worcester production I had the opportunity to direct the play myself for Whirligig Theatre, my own touring children’s theatre company. I did a bit of re-writing, slightly simplifying the action, which originally had switched back and forth between the two worlds rather too much, I fancy! Samuel French, the publishers, kindly republished the revised version, which is the one that is still occasionally performed – though not as often as I would like!

All good wishes, and thank you for taking the trouble to write.

Best wishes.

I am writing to say thank you for coming to our university for you talk on children's theatre was very inspiring as a writer I never really knew how challenging it was to write for children until I heard and read your tales and stories. I also very much appreciated you acting class as well, and I will be using your techniques in everything that I do. Thank you so much again.

David Wood Tuesday, 25 November 2014 13:08
Thanks for your message, Jade. Very pleased that you felt my visit was valuable! I always enjoy coming to Worcester. The students are always willing and enthusiastic! All good wishes for the future! Best wishes. David

Dear Mr Wood,

Its a pleasure to be sending you this message.
When I was younger I always watched The Gingerbread Man on TV. It was my favorite thing to do I could just sit there and watch the same one all day. For the past few years people have been asking me which TV shows I watched as a young child and I've always told them, there was this one show about a gingerbread man and an evil teabag but no-ones ever knew what I meant. Now after 10 years I've found what I've been looking for and I've come to say thank you.
Thank you for giving me my childhood in the best and safest way possible.

lots of love,

David Wood Monday, 10 November 2014 14:35
Thanks, Rhianne, for your very rewarding message! So pleased that you enjoyed watching THE GINGERBREAD MAN. As you may know, all the episodes are available on DVD now.

The aim was always to make more episodes, but sadly the company that made them was taken over by another company that decided not to go ahead!

Although my version of THE GINGERBREAD MAN story started off as a play and then became a book, I always wanted it to become an animation series, so it was very exciting to watch it being made. Not only that, I was allowed to be the voice of the Gingerbread Man too!

All good wishes.

Hi David

We just watched "The Queen's Handbag" again and many thanks for such a great show.

It was better than we remembered it and we thought it was really good at the time. It was lovely to see it because my daughter who was 7 at the time was reminded of it, and my daughter who was 2 obviously didn't remember it at all.

For a while after the original we used to play a game of making up stories without baddies to match the brilliant line "Oh what a lot of of lovely dalmations. The End"

I'm also pleased to say that in the last year or so we saw BFG at Dundee Rep and Illyria's production of George's Marvellous Medicine!

We remain huge David Wood fans in this family!


David Wood Thursday, 16 October 2014 09:55
Thanks, Ian, for your very kind message.

THE QUEEN'S HANDBAG took up seven months of my life, and wasn't easy ...! But I wouldn't have missed it for the world! Very glad that you and the family enjoyed it. Maybe I should watch it again!

The original intention had been for the play to be released in aid of charity as a DVD. Sadly, various copyright problems prevented this.

Delighted, too, that you saw THE BFG at Dundee. This coming Christmas Dundee Rep are doing my adaptation of JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH. Hope you can see that, too.

Another production of THE BFG will be at the Lyceum, Edinburgh.

Thanks for your interest and generous words!

All good wishes to you and your family.

Dear David,

I recently watched If... Again, and as someone sent to a boarding school was quite moved by it when I watched it back then too.
Thanks for a great performance.

Best Regards


David Wood Thursday, 2 October 2014 10:48
Thanks, James for your message. Glad to hear that IF.... still 'works' for you! I hear that the Blu-ray edition came out recently! Sobering to think we made it over 45 years ago!
