A girl is very sick. A magic scroll can save her. The Dark Man must find this scroll. Or the girl will die. But the scroll is guarded by a water demon.

Part of the incredible Dark Man phenomenon, this gritty and mysterious book will grip readers and pull them into the tense storyline. The sinister atmosphere and strong black-and-white illustrations will entice even the most reluctant of teen readers because the book doesn't patronise, and accompanies the dark tales with a 'grown-up' style. This is one of six plays in a format suitable for performance and small group readings.
