The Sparrow is a 1967 play by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn. It has since been withdrawn from production by Ayckbourn. The Sparrow is about a young teenage girl, who finds out that she has magical powers. When she was younger, she misused those powers, and was sent away to a special school. As the play starts, she is coming back to her home town after many years. It is hard for her to be the new kid, and she has only one friend that was introduced to her, by her teacher. The girl must use her powers to save her new friend, and hope that the people of the town will accept her.
