About The Silver Coin

The Silver Coin is based on a play we made for St Paul’s Nursery in 2019. It was originally written and performed by Jessica Hoffman, Katie Storer and Malcolm Hamilton. The play was inspired by real people and events from our past.

Alison adapted it into a storytelling session for one of our family days in early 2020. She is so excited to bring it to you in a digital format.
