Dare to Learn Theatre

Education through Entertainment

Dare to Learn Theatre is a platform for our theatre in education work across the country.

Theatre in Education is a huge part of our work, and we believe that theatre in education plays a valuable role in not only an alternative route of education, but the future of UK's theatre. We understand that a theatre in education play not only has to be informative, but also, could be a young person's first experience in theatre, so has to be of high quality.

Verge of Harm

With Oldham College and NHS

Abuse and harmful relationships between young people in Greater Manchester is a growing concern that needs addressing urgently.

Verge of Harm is a project to tackle such anti-social behaviours and youth violence, working with Oldham College students to raise awareness and understanding through a ten minute play and 5 short films. Both pieces highlight specific forms of abuse to represent how both the perpetrator and victim feel in given scenarios, with the intention of preventing harmful relationships amongst younger people as they are supported by a better understanding and can recognise harmful attitudes.
