"It is remarkable that each year you give us something special both in terms of the drama performances but also in the workshops. The responses of the pupils throughout the day and their comments to us the following week indicate just how much they enjoyed and appreciated it"

                         Head of PSHE Haberdashers Aske's School

Creative, involving and engaging classroom solutions

THE CONCEPT
Based on our imaginary "Beyond the Surface" fly on the wall documentary series, each of our 5 shows focuses on 2 teenagers watching a different episode.
The plays and films are made up of clips from the invented programme, reactions of those watching it, as well as glimpses of other shows and adverts.
The format allows for an extensive look at an issue in a short space of time.
From teenagers to parents, the pub to the school play ground, the ideas of school children to doctors and psychologists, these performances are an excellent springboard for our follow-up workshops or to run our supplied classroom resources.
The shows vary in content and can be delivered to different year groups.
