The Brook in the Woods

“The Brook in the Woods – the Joy of Loving” is the title of the musical starring 34 children and adolescents of Mumbai in support of the United World Week.

6 weeks of preparatory work, 34 actors and an audience of 250 people 36 thousand rupees gathered, equivalent to about €500 which is quite remarkable, considering that the sum will allow 10 youth of the city to participate in the 5-day programme to be held in Mumbai.

The SMU 2015 transits through India. As occurred last year in Africa, the event that highlighted theUbuntu concept, this time the event will focus on the subcontinent, cradle of a variety of ethnic and religious groups that will host the main event of the week in Mumbai, from27 April to1st May, to conclude in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu (southern India), on 4 May.

As can be imagined there was an enormous load of work for the preparations of all the details- Due to this the entire Focolare Community of Mumbai has decided to roll up their sleeves and support the youth in this initiative.

A first concrete job was to prepare their own musical “The Brook in the Woods,” staged last 22 February. A story that begins with the message of unity which the Gen4 (the children of the Focolare Movement) sing about. Rehearsals, performed with enthusiasm and commitment by the children, and even with some unexpected problems that came up: the day before musical two of them got sick with high fever and the authors had to change the lyrics!

“My children are so happy!” a mother explained, They made new friends and say that they miss the rehearsals., even more than their schoolmates, because they were so happy to be together.”

"Even if the children are talented in song or dance,” another mother said, “it’s so nice to see these talents used for a beautiful and valuable cause.”
