A small picture accompanies a text about the playsâ histories to make it livelier for children.
The initial idea for the kids section stems from Margaret Fisher, one of the siteâs collaborators, who had had some troubles with her daughter (12) when trying to convince her of going to a play. Fisherâs daughter had tried to play ill when asked if coming to the evening show. Knowing her daughterâs habitual strategies of avoiding certain obligations, Fisher tried to convince her, without success.
