A student-centred new writing/performance project for secondary schools and non-mainstream settings which enables students to work with a professional writer, director and/or designer to create their own piece of theatre to be performed to family and other students. This is developed over a series of workshop sessions (in-school or after-school) with an emphasis on devising, scripting and collaboration skills. The theme can be discussed at the planning stage offering, for example, an enhancement of a cross-school or termly focus. This programme is particularly successful among G&T students, as an intensive preparation for GCSE, or in non-mainstream settings as an issue-based intervention.
For more information about the project and to discuss running something similar in your school, contact Beccy Allen, Head of Creative Learning at Half Moon.

Over eight sessions, students worked with Writer Victoria Evaristo and Director Thierry Lawson to create Barricade of Rules. The subject of the play came from the students themselves and explored identity, social media and social rules, offering the young people a voice to express their views on the rules that govern them.
