Looking for a thought provoking, accessible and entertaining way of introducing a topic, presenting educational information or tackling an issue? Then consider a performance from our troop of Professional Actors.
‘Jude’s Applied Actors were selected because of their track record of working to challenge discrimination and enable empowerment.
The actors were completely believable in role and engaged the audience in some very thought provoking and solution finding problems. The portrayal of ‘Nick’s’ inability to help himself out of his problems brought tears to our eyes.
This performance has led to the planning of projects which tackle very sensitive subjects such as mental health in young people, and will in turn lead on to more work tackling social issues’
