Where The Lines Are Drawn - Casting Call
After the success of the last year’s touring production, Little Fish is in the process of casting a re-tour of this original theatre project exploring hate crime. WTLAD by Suha Al- Khayyat (Viralize, Jaded, Kiss & Tell) will be a 45-minute performance followed by a 30-minute workshop for young people exploring the motivations behind hate crime. Using four actors who will play multiple roles, the piece will explore how verbal abuse and cyberbullying can escalate into crime and violence, how UK laws protect victims of hate crime, and what happens to perpetrators after a crime is reported. The performance and workshop will be toured in secondary schools and youth clubs before a showcase performance across Bexley and Greenwich as a part of Anti-Hate Crime Week.
