During September Peterborough City Council have commissioned Applied Theatre specialists Alter Ego to tour schools in Peterborough with their highly innovative production “Chelsea’s Choice”.
The play will be shown to students in years 10 to post 16 at Marshfield’s School on Monday 12th September at 9.30am.
Chelsea’s Choice is a 40 minute long play aimed at raising awareness around the very sensitive issue of Child Sexual Exploitation. The play tells the story of the students who discover the diary of a girl called Chelsea. Chelsea was a young girl who, having fallen out with her friends and family, was approached by a man called Gary. Gary was older, owned a car, had a flat and treated her like an adult. Unfortunately, Gary was not what he seemed to be! Chelsea’s story is played out and examined by the three students along with their teacher in an attempt to understand what happened to Chelsea and how it could have been prevented.
