Medical science and associated issues related to human health are developing at an unprecedented pace. Such developments concern us all, and yet the ways in which young people can engage in, explore and understand these subjects are extremely limited.

Theatre provides an accessible way into complex scientific issues through story telling. By providing a structure that everyone can relate to - human relationships - challenging and complex issues become understandable and interesting. The human health issues addressed by Theatre of Debate are universal, ethical questions, and are key subjects on the GCSE Science curriculum. Evaluation of Theatre of Debate programmes demonstrates enhanced understanding and performance in this area by participating students, as well as developments in critical thinking and citizenship studies.

In development

We are currently developing several new live Theatre of Debate projects including

Cissy - Transgender
Typify - Diabetes
Untitled - Artifical intelligence and machine learning
Untitled - County Lines

Expect live performances of these projects in 2020, in the meantime we are developing content for this page which will be a record of all our productions a to date.
