Since January 2015, Anti-Bullying Works and Chichester Festival Theatre have been working together to develop an exciting project producing a verbatim theatre performance for young people on the theme of bullying. This style of documentary theatre uses the precise words spoken by people interviewed about a particular event or topic to construct a play.
From anonymous interviews conducted with children, young people, parents/carers, teachers, youth workers and community leaders about their experiences of bullying, the basis of a verbatim script has been generated. A tour of the piece to schools and community venues will be held during the Summer Term of 2016, with performances supported by an accompanying workshop and a resource pack.
Ahead of the tour in the Summer, we would like to invite any interested schools or individuals to a free rehearsed reading of the piece at Central Sussex College, Haywards Heath on Thursday 17 March, 4.00pm just go to www.abvphh.eventbrite.co.uk to book a FREE ticket.
