For the last 5 years the company, working alongside writer Tunde Euba, has worked in partnership with the The Metropolitan Police and Families United taking the project CHOICES to secondary schools, colleges and youth offending centres. The work explores youth violence, gang culture and the choices that young people make and the ramifications of those choices. Brothers is one of three plays created for that programme, and will be performed on the Thursday evening of the ‘Empire and Post-Empire in the Global City’ Workshop at King’s College London. The company additionally creates participatory and learning theatre programmes across all school age groups.
