Play It Again Theatre Company
is based in South East Cornwall and was created out of the belief that all young people should experience the power of live theatre and that live theatre can inspire and empower young people as they make their way through life’s challenges.
They present challenging topics such as cyber bullying, sexting, binge drinking and racism through the medium of high energy, fast-moving, interactive theatre and encourage their audiences to discuss, share and test out choices during follow-up workshops.
They always encourage schools to invite families along to performances and workshops; their theatre brings people together and they want it to initiate discussion and openness about tricky issues.
Their style of theatre is created with Augusto Boal (R.I.P!) in mind. Just as Boal encouraged audiences to become ‘spectactors’ who were actively involved in resolving plots, their audiences have the power to assert their opinions and explore social possibilities.
