Current Production

Really enjoyed the performance-I was very hard hitting but was a good mix of comedy and tragedy and the laughs did not take away from the seriousness of the message.Loved the music
The drama was very thought provoking...
It really shown light on the devastating effect cyber bullying/bullying has on families and their communities..
This is something which I will emphasise with young people much more when discussing how bullying can impact the individual/families. The importance of being nice and including others. Young people’s responsibilities will be echoed when challenging bullying especially in the school environment...
