There are some exciting changes ahead. Many of our theatre in education programmes have been running for many years and so are regularly reviewed and refreshed to ensure that they reflect the experiences of young people and what schools and funders are asking us for.

This January sees the official relaunch of our popular sexual health programme Trust Me. The programme has the same basic story (so fans of the characters of April and Dave can relax) however the focus is more on navigating sexual health within a generally healthy relationship. The characters get on much better and are closer than before…they just struggle with communicating particularly around sexual health. The drama covers many issues including consent, contraception, accessing sexual health services as well as pressures from pornography, social media and gender expectations.

We also have plans over the next few months to make some changes to the Safe and Sound programme. This successful theatre in education programme on domestic violence in teenage relationships will have some changes to the workshop to enable us to explore male victims of controlling relationships and widen the examples and types of relationships we explore.

If you would like to find out more about either of these programmes then contact us here.

What people say

Take a look at how we’ve helped others

Brilliant acting and interaction with the children. The play itself covered puberty in an open, realistic and humorous way which forms a terrific basis for future discussion with the teacher and each other. So much depends on the enthusiasm of the actors and I feel that we were very lucky to have such a talented pair, not only to perform, but to lead the discussions afterwards. They were able to relate to the children without any embarrassment. SUPERB!!


Compared to other companies we have had covering the same content, the actors were more flexible and accommodating to the children’s individual needs. Through their answers and questions, the children were demonstrating a higher level of understanding, empathy and personal safety.
