These well-known characters, minus the dog, are taking a quick break from their adventures, but will they have time to enjoy their picnic before they are called to solve another mystery?
JULIAN – The eldest boy in the family, who has boundless energy and enthusiasm and many leadership qualities.
DICK – Definitely the weakling in the family. He finds it very hard to live up to his elder brother’s masculinity and confidence.
GEORGE – A tomboy with the strength and confidence to rival her elder brother. She gets stuck in to any adventure and wouldn’t be seen dead in a dress.
ANNE – The complete opposite to George, Anne is a typical girl. Loves her pretty clothes and looking after her siblings, but is still far more macho than her brother, Dick.
There are lots of opportunities to develop these characters on stage. They are all such different personalities and there are many opportunities to showcase the humorous dialogue.
There are very few props required for this quartet and the few props that are required are easy to get hold of.
