In March 2011, NCRN commissioned an organisation called Little Big Butterfly pilot a piece of theatre at the Linhope Pupil Referral Unit in Newcastle.

Our aim:

  • to create in three days a piece of  theatre relating to a chosen conflict
  • to  perform the piece to an audience including other pupils within the school
  • to take part in a workshop exploring with the audience other ways of handling the conflict.

The theatre approach adopted was based on the work of Augusto Boal and his Forum Theatre.
