Cookies: The Film

During Anti-Bullying Week 2017 (w/c 13th November), we will be hosting a filmed version of the production which you'll be able to stream directly from this page on our website!

Alongside the filmed version of the play, teachers can access free PSHE and Drama resource packs, with a range of Cookies related activities that align with the PSHE Association and AQA A-level and GSCE Drama.

By using Cookies in the classroom, teachers will be able to encourage students to tackle the serious threats that young people face online. Cookies can be used as a creative and engaging device to nurture important conversations with students from Key Stage 4 and 5.

A new play by Emily Jenkins
Directed by Anna Ledwich

Commissioned as part of the Cyberscene Project

Inspired by the true, heartfelt online stories of students, Cookies follows seven teenagers dealing with the effects of sexting, radicalisation, cyber bullying and our wider digital world…

Sosa, a tough, gay, streetwise Londoner finds solace in the tunes of her favourite rap artist, but her online world comes crashing down when she finally meets her idol.

Eva, an aspiring vlogger, splits with avid gamer Simon and is forced to deal with the devastating effects of sexting and repetitive online abuse.

Salena, infatuated with pop star Zayn Malik, starts an online friendship with another faceless superfan. As a result of their conversations the young Muslim woman begins to grapple with her faith and is persuaded to make a long journey to an unknown fate.

Written by Award-winning playwright Emily Jenkins and directed by Olivier Award nominee Anna Ledwich, Cookies takes us on an astonishing digital journey which promises to redefine how we perceive our online world.

To accompany our free Cookies education resources, a filmed version of the live performance will be released online, which will be available for free from the beginning of Anti-Bullying Week (w/c 13th November 2017).
