‘Who Are Yer?’ targets years 6 & 7 and investigates the dangers for individuals, families and society of anti social and criminal behaviour perpetrated by older children when they have little or no regard for the consequences of their actions.
Set during the difficult transition period between finishing primary and starting secondary school, the play looks at the experiences of three friends as they deal with a variety of issues surrounding friendship, bullying, truancy and peer pressure. It ends with a serious crime being committed on a busy road and a tragedy that touches many lives.
It also deals with many situations, both at home and in school, in which children can easily become both victims and victimisers.
As with all of our projects this 45minute play is supported by a workshop of similar length and a resource pack with a wide variety of follow on exercises.
