Free drama production for parents/carers

18th July 2018

South Tyneside Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) is very pleased to announce, that in partnership with The Customs House and Northumbria Police, the drama production ‘Is This Your Story?’ is back on tour.

The production will take place at 6pm on Wednesday 18th July at Boldon Community Centre, New Road, Boldon, NE35 9DZ

‘Is This Your Story?’ is a child sexual exploitation (CSE) awareness drama production. It is a verbatim theatre piece which deals with themes of CSE, social media, online grooming, consent and relationships. The scripts are taken directly from the interviews carried out by Operation Sanctuary and includes both boys and girls stories.

It is based on factual accounts of CSE related events that have happened across the region, and scenarios have been developed using the South Tyneside local profile for CSE, Missing and Trafficked. Therefore references made to key issues and places within the production will be ones that are familiar to young people e.g. sexting and Chichester Metro etc.

The production will last approximately 1 hour and is made up of a 35 minute drama production, followed by a 25 minute discussion session, which will allow for specific questions to be asked and time to clarify some of the learning from the various scenarios.
