“Best piece of theatre in education I have seen for years… Powerful theatre”
Inspired by the Charles Dickens classic, One Of Fagin’s Boys tells the story of an orphan boy called Oliver and his struggle to survive poverty and crime in Britain 2012. It’s summer, Oliver runs away from care and meets Fagin and his gang…
“Do you trust social workers, Oliver? Course you don’t. And neither did Nancy. She ran away from the kids home, didn’t you? Nancy was a very naughty girl.”
The play is part of an educational theatre programme supporting work on domestic violence and abuse, crime and anti-social behaviour, health and well being, emotional literacy, bullying, alcohol and drug misuse. It is suitable for children age 10 upwards, young people and adult groups and can be delivered in schools, youth and community groups, at conferences and as part of professional development.
The programme consists of:
1. workers’ preview (where available)
2. the play, ONE OF FAGIN’S BOYS (1 hour)
3. follow-up sessions and materials to enable groups to use the world of the play to talk safely about difficult issues relevant to their lives.
The programme starts at £300 (and is FREE to some groups in LS9, LS14 and LS15, thanks to support from JIMBO’S Fund). If you would like to book One Of Fagin’s Boys or need any further information please contact us.
