  • Overview
    This play utilises physical storytelling to tell the story of Boy - the adults in his life, his friends and his bullies. The piece explores how peer pressure can lead you to do things you shouldn't.

    In the morning session the company run workshops in the classroom to introduce the basic principles of understanding drama and to open up the issues explored in the play. In the afternoon, the classes come together to see the production and engage in a post-show workshop. This gives the audience a chance to go back into the story and try out strategies to change the outcome of the scene. Using forum theatre techniques, it is an opportunity for the young audience to ‘rehearse for life', practicing ideas of how to talk to parents, teachers and bullies.
