In partnership with Plusnet, Konnie Huq – former Blue Peter presenter and youth theatre company Chickenshed, we’ve created three plays to help bring to life some of the digital challenges facing young people today.
This is a unique opportunity to see young people performing plays written with their input to offer insight into three main issues: online grooming, online reputation and cyberbullying.
Plays on the Internet Giveaway
For one night only, the plays will be performed by actors from the Chickenshed theatre company and we’ve got three pairs of free tickets to giveaway.
If you are a parent and would like to come along with a guest to be moved, entertained and leave with more insight about the online issues that children face, please send us an email to [email protected] to be in with a chance of winning.
The tickets will be given on a first come first serve basis so you’ve got to get in quickly. We will get in touch with the lucky winners as soon as all of them have gone.
The performance will take place on Monday 30th April at 6.30pm at Chickenshed Theatre, 290 Chase Side, London, N14 4PE.
