Masterclass in partnership with the anti-bullying charity Kidscape is developing a creative, hands-on learning project which uses theatre to support the health and well-being of young people affected by cyberbullying.
Led by Masterclass and a team of professional theatre makers, the project will work with students from South Thames College, Leyton Sixth Form College, Hackney Community College and Barnet and Southgate College to create a play that explores and shares their experiences of cyberbullying and its effects on them and their peers.
Working with a professional director and writer, the play will be scripted through a series of theatre workshops exploring the impact of cyberbullying and will then be performed at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2017.
The heart of the project is about using theatre to give young people a voice, create a lasting legacy from their own perspective, help and inspire other young people in similar situations and to raise awareness of the issue.
