Testimonials

All Blood's Red

"This play showed our children that we are all the same, irrespective of colour or religion and raised many issues our pupils would not have thought of as being racist"

- Miss Hough – Palace Fields School

Big School

"I was dead worried about going to senior school but the play has made me feel loads better, I’m not a bit worried now because I know what to expect."

- Luke Age 11 Pupil, Formby High School.

Cheesy Feet and Toe Jam

"A splendid play, which really got to the heart of the matter. Our pupils really enjoyed the performance, and are more aware of their own personal hygiene"

- Mr Young – Shorefields Technology College.

Everyone else is doing it

"Very informative about STIs. I think a lot of questions were answered about things that young people would normally feel too embarrassed to ask about"

- Jenny Tucker Youth Worker, The Place Mobile Project

Fair Start

"The main message conveyed was that no matter who you are or where you come from, with a bit of hard work and determination you can achieve anything"

– Eoghan Rafferty Flintshire High School

If you can't do the time

"I've never been to the theatre or anything before and I didn’t know what to expect, I thought it was going to be boring, but it was great! It was dead real, just like we really talk and about things that really happen in our lives. It made me understand that what we are doing has an affect on other people."

- Joanne aged 15, Member of FZY youth club

Just have one

"I think sadly, drugs and alcohol seem very appealing to young people and so today’s performance will have made them realise that they are not."

– Miss Brown, Trinity High School Newbury

Me Man You Woman?

"The play was dead good. It told me loads of things that I would feel too embarrassed to ask my mum and dad about. It was also good because now I know that I had the wrong idea about some things and that this happens to everyone"

- Shaniqua Year 7 pupil at Shorefields Technology College

More than Dreams

"The event becomes a kind of theatrical debate, in which experiences and ideas are rehearsed and shared, generating both solidarity and a sense of empowerment for the pupils who are involved"

- Nadine Baxter-Smallwood (Aim Higher – Cumbria)

No Stress, Just Success

"Gained understanding in a fun way and reinforced the idea that everyone is different but all skills are equally valid."

- Paul George The Heath School

Personal Finance Education Group

"I’ve heard my mum and Dad talking about debt and having savings, but I didn’t think it applied to me"

- Sam, Gordon Youth Club

Playing Away

"I thought I would hate the project, but it was great. We had a good laugh and learned a lot. I’m not as shy now and I realise that if I put my mind to it I can achieve anything"

- Aiden, Student at The Key Stage 4 Centre

"…exceptionally good at working with all ability ranges to give them a sense of worth and achievement. I cannot recommend this programme highly enough for motivating pupils to succeed."

- Claire Heslop, Holly Lodge Girls’ College

Scars

"A very difficult subject was addressed head on. Our young people have benefited greatly from seeing this performance. Stereotypes were challenged and the origins of the characters’ problems were explored. Very thought provoking."

- Danny Roberts Youth Worker, LYS

Scientifically Possible

"I would never have though of working in science, I didn’t realise how interesting it could be or how much money you could make!"

- Paul Aged 14, Hillside High School

These Four Girls

"The play was great. It’s given me the confidence to believe that I can do well, and not try and do what other people want me to do"

- Chantelle Aged 15, Holly Lodge Girls College

Unique

"I think it has helped our pupils understand that others share their worries and that it is good to be Unique. The pupils will think about their talents and about what makes them Unique"

– Mrs O’Driscoll Broughton Hall

Up in smoke

"The play was unbelievable! I didn’t think I would like it. I’ve never seen a play before but it was brilliant. It has really made me think. I have been smoking since I was eleven and now I think I want to stop. It was the question and answer session at the end that got to me, being able to ask the characters questions really helped me learn"

- Mark 14, Anfield Youth Club.

What Next?

"This play has helped me focus on what I want to do next. I didn’t realise I had so many options"

- John, E2E student

Who do you think you are?

"Before this play I have given Goths and Hippies a lot of hassle, skitting them and that, I will think before I do it again. And in the future I won’t just be doing things because my mates say, I’ll only do things if I want to"

- Adam age 15, Harold House Youth Club
