This is the story of World War 1, seen through the eyes of the soldiers on each side. “You are blind like us. Your hurt no man designed. And no man claimed the conquest of your land. And in each other’s dearest ways we stand. And hiss and hate. And the blind fight the blind.”
Following the stories of soldiers on the front line, heroically patriotic, unimaginably brave and dedicated to the cause. We discover what life was really like in the trenches and how the soldiers coped with the difficult conditions and being torn from their loving families, through letters they send home.
Life in the Trenches – A Soldier’s Tale
Our Planet – The Battle of the Bigfoot’s & Tinytoes
In our ever-changing world, society needs to understand the impact of its presence on our planet. Using the theme ‘Big Foots’ and ‘Tiny Toes’ to represent those who have different size carbon footprints, the two groups explore daily situations, and the audience is shown how their varying behaviour can affect our environment. By the end of the story, we hope the ‘Tiny Toes’ can educate the ‘Big Foots’ and the audience on how we need to behave to preserve our planet.
Cirque du Respect!
In a world where mutual respect is decreasing, we explore what a little human decency and acceptance of others could do if everyone followed the ‘Code’ of RESPECT:
R = Respect E = Everyone S = So P = People E = Everywhere C = Co-exist T = Together.
Using the vibrant and varied backdrop of the ‘Circus’ we see the obstacles and difficulties faced when people from different backgrounds and beliefs are forced to co-exist in the same environment. Initially, this causes unrest, will they follow the ‘Code’ and celebrate each other’s difference or remain fractured?
The Game of Life
This workshop follows the journey of contestants in a game show who are desperate to prove to their ‘bosses’ they have all the like skills needed to be awarded their dream jobs. Valuable lessons and aspirations are explored in their quest to be the best they can be.
Captain Health and his Fitness Crusaders
In every house, in every street, in every country of the world, an epidemic is taking hold. The parks, playing fields and swimming pools are becoming desolate as children opt for a far less healthy way to spend their time. Locked inside their stuffy bedrooms, not speaking, barely noticing their surroundings, completely consumed by… social media or online gaming. In a twist of fate one eventful night, these gamers are given the lesson of a lifetime when one of their computer favourites ‘Captain Health and his Fitness Crusaders’, takes back the controls and sets the children on a mission all of their own.
We have started research on the next phase of productions which focus on handheld technology, social media and virtual reality for young people. In exploring these subjects, we hope to highlight the pitfalls and celebrate the positives.
We hope to create a series of workshops surrounding this ever-evolving subject by exploring individuals real and online presence. The key message will be about keeping up with technology but at the same strike a balance so it doesn’t take over our lives stop it from owning us.
Our team of writers and musical producers can also create bespoke workshops based on a theme requested by a school that is relevant to their curriculum and/or current topics.
