Story

For our final year of Education at Chickenshed we were divided into three different groups. Within these groups we have devised and created issue based pieces of theatre that we tour around schools and workshop with students:

Guilty

We're all guilty. Every single one of us. Our mistakes could be the end of the world as we know it. We need to take action and issue change.

"They say ignorance is bliss. But now it's time to stop being ignorant. Open your eyes and realise it's not as blissful as you may think."

Throughout this journey you'll not only learn something new but you'll also learn the reason for mankind's guilt. Will you change your ways to help change the world? Or will you continue with your ignorance until there is nothing left? We're all guilty. Every single one of us. But ask yourself. Are you guilty?


Look Up

It sounds crazy but looking down for one second can lose you a lifetime of moments, a lifetime of "one seconds". Are these just products of society or is technology driving us to us to insanity. With this world progressing and our dependency on technology, are the devices we have truly necessary or something we take advantage of, or are we the ones being taken advantage of? This device that we use is our other half! has our dependency on the world most addictive drug gone too far? can these students come together to find why we're all addicted to these tiny devices? Will you be next or will you decided to just look up?


Scratch The Surface

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” - Albert Einstein.

Do you find it hard to listen and learn when you’re in school? Do you feel like you’re not as clear as everyone else around you? Based on personal experiences at school, Scratch The Surface looks at creating awareness that you can look at things in life in a multitude of different ways, including the way you learn and how you can survive a system designed for a specific niche of people. 

Don’t push aside or generalise, take the time to listen and emphasise. There’s more to read between the lines, to judge a book by its cover hides the stories inside. 


Please donate to help us reach as many people as possible with our performances of these issues.

Any donation will be very much appreciated,

Thank you for your support! :]
