“As a cross-curricular learning tool it is some of the best educational work we have seen.” Head of Drama, Cockburn High School, Leeds

A participatory theatre event

  • The students are introduced to the world of the story and the characters within it.

  • The students’ investment grows with the story because they see their ideas being incorporated.
