Harrow Schools produce Game Over
This project was kindly funded by
The Harrow Safer Neighbourhood Board
100% of the audience who filled in feedback forms said that the play would inspire them to talk to their children about grooming and internet safety
In April 2022 two secondary schools in the London borough of Harrow collaborated with us to create a two-day event based on our play Game Over. The event comprised multiple performances by pupils, a carousel of specially created workshops and an outreach programme that saw nearly 1,000 local pupils from four local schools watch the play over the two days. There was an evening gala performance for parents and dignitaries, with Q&As with Breck Foundation, the playwright Mark Wheeller and the cast of the show. The schools also created an art competition to design posters that were used in the final production.
Breck Foundation created and delivered powerful workshops to support the play, designed to help younger secondary years take a deeper look at Breck's story and their understanding of grooming issues. In addition, Lorin la Fave delivered a pre-production workshop with the cast several months before the performances.
986 young people saw the play over the two-day period
100 specially selected young people, from marginalised and vulnerable groups, took part in bespoke workshops based on the play
178 parents, community members and dignitaries watched the evening
