THE PLAYGROUND THEATRE with NICK OF TIME PRODUCTIONS Presents
VALUE ENGINEERING & SYSTEM FAILURE - Scenes from the Inquiry
with VALUED & SYSTEMS EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMME
Following on from the success of VALUED ENGINEERING and the accompanying education project ‘VALUED’, The Playground Theatre is delighted to once again offer local schools and organisations the chance to be a part of an important cultural event - Nicholas Kent and Richard Norton-Taylor’s follow up play ‘SYSTEM FAILURE’ and its accompanying education project ‘SYSTEMS’.
Alongside the production The Playground Theatre is providing an education programme. The programme, SYSTEMS, will provide local schools with information about the production alongside the contemporary issues of importance that it addresses and wider understanding of communities, social justice and human rights.
We are offering groups the chance to have one 90-minute workshop, attend one performance of ‘Grenfell: Systems Failure’ and post-show talk with creatives, plus receive curriculum aligned resources for continued learning in the classroom.
We know flexibility is key so we’ll arrange dates for workshops that work for you. You may attend the workshop before or after the performance and choose which performance works for you. This opportunity is available for up to 30 students at a total cost of £500.00 (including workshop, theatre tickets, post-show discussion and further learning resources).
If you’re interested or would like any further information please contact Paul on firstname.lastname@example.org
SYSTEMS In-school Workshop
Exploring themes of human rights, social conditions and the theatrical device of verbatim theatre. How can we use verbatim to tell stories, how might we stage them? Using multi-disciplinary skills, students will devise a piece of verbatim theatre. Please let us know which date can work for you.
SYSTEMS Schools Post-show Discussions
