“Theatre is a form of knowledge; it should and can also be a means of transforming society. Theatre can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it.” – AUGUSTO BOAL

At Going Public Theatre Company we are passionate about using the creative arts and good humour to bring hope and healing to every life we encounter. We do this by using quality live theatre shows and workshops to inform and inspire young people – helping them believe they are of worth, and equipping them to make healthy decisions about important issues in their lives, such as sex and relationships, alcohol misuse, mental health, self-esteem and life choices.

With over 20 years of experience we offer…

  • Quality live theatre which works for all learning types
  • Characters that the young people can identify and connect with
  • Comedy and good humour
  • Interactive workshops that discuss the issues addressed
  • Personal stories which connect with the young people and challenge them to make good decisions
  • Adaptable shows and workshops to suit a range of environments and timetables – from Pupil Referral Units, to large comprehensive schools; Special Needs Schools to local youth groups.
  • Bespoke drama workshops to build skills and confidence
  • Commissioned work for particular subjects or situations – for schools, youth groups, events or conferences

Fresh Ideas…

At Going Public Theatre Company we are always looking for ways to grow and develop our theatre resources and are keen to take on new subjects and issues for both educational and theatrical purposes. If there is a subject you would like us to tackle, or a specific event you have in mind for young people, adults or any age group, then please get in touch – we always love to have a chat
