COULD NEVER BE ME

...

“You read it in the newspapers and see it on TV,
And you sit there and think, ‘That could never be me’.
But the real truth is… it always could be.”

After the success of reaching over 40 secondaries across London in 2019/2020 with ‘Captcha’ and ‘Written’, Little Fish is touring a new theatre production with a post-show workshop for year 9-11 pupils/students in March ‘21.

In 2020, teenagers Jackson, Caleb, Tianna and Gigi feel they’re pretty clued up when it comes to spotting the ‘Red Flags’ in relationships. But seeing the signs doesn’t automatically mean they’re easy to avoid and over the course of the strangest year of the 21st century, they realise that ‘feelings’ plus ‘manipulation’ equals a ‘blind side’, that leaves them all in compromising situations.

Through exploring masculinity, femininity, technology and relationships, the play highlights how young people have been exposed to new unexpected risks due to the ongoing pandemic. It looks at ways of encouraging young people to open up about difficult feelings and ask for help when their relationships are in trouble.

All performances & workshops will work within COVID-19 restrictions, social distancing and latest guidance.

This project contributes to schools meeting the overarching Ofsted criteria for improving:

*Healthy relationships between young people

*Behaviour and safety of pupils in schools

*Achievement of pupils in schools.
