Tunmarsh School PRU Drama Workshop Programme

Delivered by Intermission Youth

About the project

Intermission Youth is running a drama project at Tunmarsh School, a pupil referral unit in Newham. Up to 25 students will take part in a weekly drama workshop exploring key issues facing the students, using drama exercises, improvisations and discussion. The 12-week programme culminates a performance at the end of the term.

Activities include games and exercises aimed at developing confidence, self-esteem, problem-solving skills, team work and communication. Through the workshops, they will explore Shakespeare’s stories as a mirror to their own life experiences, tackling relevant and challenging issues such as exclusion, peer-pressure, isolation, crime, relationships, racism, rivalry, jealousy, love. Through exploring scenarios and potential outcomes, students are steered to think about making better decisions and life choices.

The project gives young people who have been excluded a voice, an opportunity to create something positive and inspire them. The programme is co-facilitated by graduates of Intermission’s Youth Theatre, who will provide peer-to-peer connections, insight and understanding.
