To Be Continued examines the pressures to “be a man” and young women’s daily, normalised experiences of sexualised behaviour by young men. Through poetry and participatory theatre techniques, music and media, the play is designed to engage Year 9 – 11 students in thinking critically about the worlds within which they live and how to make positive choices. This important play comes at a time when young people are reaching out for support. We aim to open up these conversations and empower young people to call out inappropriate behaviour.
It’s the summer holidays and Tace and Amy are thrown together via a National Citizenship Service project which requires them to work in Peaborough Residential Home for the Elderly. As time goes by, they develop feelings for each other and start to see the world differently, with the help of the characters within the home. A mix-up results in them losing contact as they embark on separate journeys, exploring the complexities and challenges of being a girl or a boy and navigating the various expectations placed upon them. Tace enrols in a new London school, whilst his mum pursues her career as a female writer in Birmingham. Through their stories, we see how their worlds parallel each other and how they are both faced with a decision to do the right thing by being an ally to another.
A RETOUR TO GREENWICH SECONDARY SCHOOLS IS TAKING PLACE IN APRIL 2023. PLEASE CONTACT INFO@LITTLEFISHTHEATRE FOR MORE INFORMATION AND TO BOOK.
