An Evening of Nastiness and Bad Behaviour
Following some challenging behaviour in last year's company the creative team at Theatre Factory sat down with Senior 1 and we talked together at length about why bad behaviour happens and the stresses and pressures on young people today.
Out of those interesting discussions came this evening's entertainment. It is a mixture of the young people's own devised pieces plus some extracts from classic and modern plays.
Performed by Barrow Youth Theatre, Senior 1 on Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 December 2016 at Theatre Factory
