Issues Based Drama for the Classroom or Workplace

Issues such as prejudice, bullying, team building and self-esteem can be explored through non-threatening drama activities that bring people together to solve problems and raise issues. By using Drama the group is propelled into another place where issues are less confronting and deep understanding can take place. We will customise the drama to suit your needs.
