The Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust (Masterclass) in partnership with the Pureland Foundation and children's charity Kidscape are delighted to announce that during Anti-Bullying Week 2017 (w/c 13th November), a filmed live performance of Cookies by Emily Jenkins will be available to stream directly from the Masterclass website.
Filmed by London-based video agency, Kinura, the film will accompany free PSHE and Drama resource packs which include professional advice from Kidscape, easy-to-follow exercises and over 30 extensive theatre-based, written and creative activities that align with the PSHE Association and AQA A-level and GSCE Drama national curriculum.
Masterclass and Kidscape have spent over a year working with 16 to 19 year old students from varying areas of study, collating and exploring exciting, fresh material through diverse and successful workshops. As such, the resources will help teachers cover various topics within the curriculum using drama-based creative activities.
Directed by Olivier Award nominee Anna Ledwich, the play is inspired by true, heartfelt online stories of students and follows seven teenagers dealing with the effects of sexting, radicalisation, cyber bullying and our wider digital world
The project has been delivered under the artistic guidance of renowned British theatre director, Jonathan Church CBE.
