Plusnet Plays on the Internet

Tackling online issues through drama

Together with Plusnet and children’s author Konnie Huq, we have created new children’s plays to educate parents and children on internet safety.

The plays use theatre to explore three important topics relevant to young digital natives today – cyberbullying, online grooming and online reputation. The scripts are available to download below.
