Explores themes such as:

  • Peer Pressure

Workshop

Following the 20 minute performance, the students are encouraged to address the issues in the piece with the characters, asking questions, gathering further information on their motivations and then offering them advice. 

Sections of the piece are replayed and students are able to change the actions of the characters, leading them to a more positive outcome. These techniques enable young people to critically think about situations and issues that may effect them, further helping them to make positive and safe choices in the real world.

“Year 10's were invited to watch a performance by Round Midnight which aimed to highlight the signs of risky behaviour and how to avoid these situations. Students thoroughly enjoyed taking an active role in guiding the performers through various risky scenarios in order to demonstrate how they could be avoided. Students commented on how well the scenarios were designed as they reflected "real life" situations that they recognised and could engage with. "
