Event Details

 

Footlights Theatre Schools Education Team continues its mission in tackling Child Sexual Exploitation through early intervention. Our professional Play is a highly respected method of awareness raising within our communities. It is designed to promote our "Invisible" Child Sexual Exploitation Play and workshops which have been designed to be used in Schools, Colleges, Conferences, Youth & Sports Clubs, Uniformed Services and Faith and Church groups as an innovative way to promote awareness around the subject and associated issues. 

We are working with Greater Manchester Police, various CSE Teams and promote Project Phoenix, not only as part of their weeks of action “It’s Not Okay” campaign but throughout the year.  This performance will be devoted to raising awareness around “how perpetrators think and operate within the grooming process”. Exploring how the different approaches are used towards children and young people, whilst striving to operate unseen.

  • Raises awareness of past cases involving young people stories, which resulted in them being exploited.
  • Raises awareness of “Possible CSE Indicators”
  • Seeing young people as “In trouble and not as trouble” and how we can be the difference in their lives.

The Invisible play is normally designed for secondary schools and colleges but due to its success in educating whole communities its being adapted for a wide audience and lasts for around 60 minutes. We include a questions and answers section where the audience will have the opportunity to ask direct questions to the character’s and explore the story lines further.

We would also like to invite professionals who work with young people and parents who would be interested in watching and learning more about what Footlights are doing to tackle these issues across Greater Manchester and beyond. The community and school events have produced many disclosures and has supported various front-line staff with an opportunity to invite their caseloads in accessing this event to build trust and explore these topics in an indirect way to produce self-reflection and identification.

 

“Invisible” is a superb and impactful play and highlights the dangers of toxic relationships. The child sexual exploitation message is delivered so clearly. The questions and answers session is extremely effective in exploring the difficult topics.  It’s so appropriate for KS3 & 4, Book it for your school if you haven’t done already
