Fairfield Halls, Croydon – 25 June 2014

Terriers is a partnership project devised and delivered by Royal Court Liverpool Trust and Merseyside Police, sponsored by the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Merseyside. It aims to get young people thinking about the consequences of their actions, their attitude towards gang behaviour and the life choices they make. It raises awareness of gun and gang related crime and explores many other issues faced by young people today, such as peer pressure, bullying, drug use and child sexual exploitation. It seeks to equip young people with strategies to deal with these issues. Ultimately, it shows them they have a choice and provides information on where they can turn if they need help or advice.

Working with the Fairfield Halls, we brought this exciting drama production to Croydon. The show will happen for a week three times over the next year for local young people from secondary schools to take part and watch the show alongside the interactive Q&A at the end.
