Game Over: a Breck Foundation play

The award-winning playwright Mark Wheeller wrote the powerful verbatim play ‘Game Over’ based on Breck's story for secondary school students. The play uses the real-life words of Breck, Breck's family and the predator.

These student-led performances, which can reach whole-school groups, parents, and teachers, allow for students to become immersed in the story while learning how to stay safe online.

To accompany Game Over, we have created a series of supporting workshops for students to attend, designed to:

  • explore issues around online behaviour and grooming

  • educate about potential victims, predators, signs of grooming and how to seek help

  • empower young people to speak up when concerned and giving them the tools to do so
