Our innovative productions tackle complex issues young people face with the truth that they were created with unique purpose to fulfill. Each production provokes questions, presents opportunities for creative problem solving and critical thinking, and is designed for direct audience participation. Productions are followed by interactive workshops that guide participants through open and honest discussion of topics addressed during the production.

On the surface things are fine, even good for Jed and Jess. Jed’s music is helping him win over this girl he’s into and Jess’s TikTok channel is really taking off. So why do Jed and Jess both long for a deeper sense of belonging?
When the pandemic forces their family into lockdown, Jess and Jed struggle to find connection and start to lose themselves in a world that becomes more virtual than reality. When Jed and Jess come to a breaking point will it be the end? Or could it be a start towards healing?
A Journey of Identity
This (approx) 30 minute production is offered for school assemblies with the option of workshop elements using theatrical techniques to follow. Additional courses are available to explore further the theme of identity.
Our newest production focuses on the theme of identity. The question of ‘Who am I?’ is crucial in the development of teenagers and so often they are looking to define themselves by what they see in the media, peer pressures, or other damaging stereotypes. By addressing this issue with young people – helping them ask the right questions – we can begin to see a shift in the trajectory of their lives.
The Rating Game
In the midst of a fledgling romance that begins on their daily commute to school on the subway, Cate and Xavier find themselves flung into a rating game where the guys grade the girls out of 10. The rating provokes questions in each character which make them delve into the perception of perfection. What does it mean to be face to face with our true selves? “Will he still like me?”, “Will she still want me?”, “Will I even like who I am?” We are able to dive into the minds and hearts of these characters and process alongside them. All of these questions are addressed using an innovative blend of spoken word, rap, song, dance and film. In the midst of the game, the subway car that they are in comes under a security threat, locking the passengers between platforms. This new twist puts the whole game into a different perspective, forcing each character to truly look at themselves and their identity. Will they cling to a life of seeming control or is it worth the adventure of discovering their true selves?
