Brothers (part of CHOICES)

In the play ‘Brothers’ we meet a pair of 2nd generation Nigerian twins growing up in the streets of London. Ken, with his traditional ideas and values, is becoming increasingly alienated from Tai, who lives by the ethics of the street. It’s a complex and potentially dangerous sibling rivalry where anger, violence and membership of a polarised street culture clash with family loyalty.

It is a partnership with SCO19 of the Met Police and their Operation Makepeace programme and Families United (a collective of families who have all been closely affected by violent crime).  It is a really thought provoking and powerful set of presentations that schools have been feeding back as having a profound impact on their young people.

NEW TOUR DATES –     Jan – Feb 2014

The programme aims to raise awareness about gang culture and youth violence for young people.

It is aimed at years 8 – 10 and consists of performances, workshops and two presentations.

Over the last three years we have toured the CHOICES programme to schools, colleges, PRUs and Youth Offending Services across London, and have received exceptional feedback from staff and students.
