Peer Productions is an award winning youth arts charity specialising in combining high quality arts practice with peer social welfare education through the medium of theatre, enabling young people to change the way they think and to make positive life choices. The focus of the work is on Identity, Crime Prevention and Health.
Original educational plays are created and toured to schools and youth settings which tackle issues such as eating disorders, homophobia, alcohol misuse, sex and relationships and mental health issues, all issues which matter to young people.
Drama outreach projects are delivered for groups of disadvantaged young people using creativity as a tool to enable them to reach their full potential and make positive life choices. These groups include young carers, young parents, learning-disabled and homeless young people.
The High Sheriff commented that “The Peer Production ‘Losing It’ at the Rhoda McGaw Theatre in Woking was amazing and a great night out. What I saw was a powerful play about sex and relationships and didn't shy away from issues around same sex, transgender, sexting, internet grooming, pornography, rape and more. This play was being shown to 13 year olds in schools across Surrey in the belief and expectation it will answer questions which that age group struggle to understand”.
