We’ll be working with young people with disabilities on backstage and offstage roles and shadowing opportunities on our NYT REP Season at Southwark Playhouse. This follows a successful pilot last year in conjunction with our performances of The Fall and DNA at Southwark Playhouse, where we facilitated work placements for young people with disability in partnership with Southwark SEN school Highshore.
Our work with Highshore School, a SEN School in Southwark, was a four stage programme working with every pupil in the school; partnering on inclusive productions at the National Theatre, delivering work experience at Southwark Playhouse and after school club drama training. The programme is returning in 2019.
