The story of Dick Whittington is one of England's best-loved folk-tales. The young Dick arrives in London, with nothing to eat and no money. His only friend is his cat... but the cat helps Dick to become the richest man in London.Dick Whittington is a lively and exciting play with a wealth of comic characters – a positive experience for primary-school pupils who are beginning to learn English. The play makes use of vocabulary that will be familiar to pupils in the 3rd and 4th school-years colours, food, animals, household items, etc.
