Large Mixed Cast
The See-Saw Tree takes a thoughtful but entertaining look at the world of an oak tree

The daily routine and domestic bickering of its animal community are shattered by the news that the tree is to be felled by the neighbouring supermarket to make way for a children's playground and garish amusement park full of video games and slot machines

Their dilemma is shared with the audience, who help to determine the fate of Owl, Squirrel, Jay, Bat, Cuckoo, Dunnock, Rabbit and Mistlethrush

"A strong message about conservation underpins The See-Saw Tree, but it is presented with great charm and fun which soften the didactic edges" ~ Anne Fitzgerald, The Birmingham Post

"...provides an invaluable guideline to the young about the importance of the environment" ~ The Stage and Television Today

"No-one knows more about the needs of children's theatre than gifted playwright-composer David Wood..." ~ Sylvia Rawlings, Evening Telegraph

"The See-Saw Tree is a brilliantly inventive, often amusing and sometimes even harrowing work" ~ Farnham Post

"Wonderful for children and exciting theatre for the adults..." ~ Farnham Herald

"...a play which is entertaining, educational and miraculously worthy without being heavy" ~ Jo Bayne, Western Daily Press

"The kids were riveted [and] the verdict afterwards was unanimous. Wonderful" ~ Anne McHardy, The Guardian
