The Troll Grandfather

Suitable for ages 5+
By Clem Martini

"The things you love will always change you."

Nine year old Sandy Nardini and her Grandpa barely know each other. Reluctantly, she has to spend the summer in his remote cabin while her mother battles ongoing health issues at home. Sandy soon discovers there are secrets in her family’s heritage and uncovers the truth…Grandpa is a troll! Grandpa and Sandy embark on an epic journey to retrieve Sandy’s magical birthright, a "kinship blessing," that could save her mother’s life or have dire consequences for their entire family.

The Troll Grandfather, at its heart, is a play that strives to bridge gaps and connect generations. It asks the simple question: how do we overcome our differences and learn to love one another?
