‘Chelsea’s Choice’ is an innovative Applied Theatre production that has proved highly effective in raising awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation amongst young people in the UK.
The production lasts for 30 minutes and tells the story of three students who, along with their tutor, discover the diary of a girl called Chelsea. Chelsea was a young girl who, having fallen out with her friends and family, was approached by a man called Gary. Gary was older, owned a car, had a flat and treated her like an adult. Unfortunately Gary was not what he seemed to be. Chelsea’s story is then played out and examined in an attempt to understand what happened to Chelsea and how it could have been prevented.
