Secondary School Projects:

High Voltage

This is an interactive workshop, using live performance to explore the consequences of peer related risk taking, specifically highlighting the dangers of play and activities conducted by young people around electrical substations. This hard-hitting piece will examine the real human cost of irresponsible behaviour escalated by peer pressure.

The project is being supported by Scottish Power Energy Networks and is touring to schools in Liverpool in January 2018.

Theatr Clwyd’s Creative Engagement team, makers of the award winning and long running Justice in a Day and Connor’s Time are returning to Secondary Schools this Autumn with a new educational project. The interactive workshop, using live performance, will explore the issues arising from Sexual Consent. In a safe and supportive environment, young people will be exploring what makes a healthy relationship, the effects of alcohol and drugs on decision making, and finally, how the law works in relation to Consent.

They will be presented with a scenario performed by professional actors, of a night out that gets out of hand, and the consequences for all those that are involved. This production is made in partnership with Flintshire’s Integrated Youth Provision, and this tour follows a successful pilot last year.

Justice In A Day
One of our major successes, receiving great acclaim and high demand for its delivery. Professional actors work with young people from schools as they follow a fictional character in a series of scenes from a moment of breaking the law to sentencing at a local Magistrates Court. As each scene develops, opportunities arise to investigate the cause and effect of being involved in law breaking – not just for the offender but also the victim, their families and the wider community.

Devised by Emyr John and produced by Theatr Clwyd and the Police and Communities Trust (PACT).  The ScottishPower Foundation together with a number of organisations and groups fund the project so that it can be provided for free at the point of delivery. 

ConnorsConnor’s Time
A follow on interactive performance workshop, targeting the same young people who participated in “Justice in a Day”, six months later. The workshop follows Connor as he leaves the custody of a Young Offender’s Institute and faces life on license in the community. The young people will act as mentors to try and help Connor steer his way through the many pitfalls that lie ahead.

The R&D and pilot scheme were made possible thanks to funding provided by the Queen’s Trust.
