More Important Things

Half Moon has teamed up with the Tower Hamlets Road Safety Team on an exciting project to draw attention to the important issue of road safety, in a bid to reduce accidents on the capital’s roads.

More Important Things, a play which explores road safety in an interactive way, will tour to 21 Primary Schools in the borough from Monday 5 June to Tuesday 20 June and will be seen by nearly 3,000 pupils over three weeks. It offers the audience input into the story by presenting different options to the scenarios showcased by the performers as they look at the dangers and life-changing accidents that occur on roads when a busy young teenager is distracted by ‘more important things’.

More Important Things also looks at the impact that serious injury and death can have upon the lives of young people, families and friends. The play was developed with Year 7 classes at Bethnal Green Academy, to ensure the voices and real experiences of young people are reflected by the show’s content.
