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