Black Eyes and Cottage Pie a unique innovative play that raises awareness about domestic abuse within intimate teenage relationships. The play tells the story of Jodie who is in an abusive teenage relationship and how over time this escalating abuse impacts on her life. The play also highlights issues of sexuality, adult domestic abuse, consent, sexting and the power of positive peer relationships.
The performance has been a huge success. Since May 2015 the performance has been shown to over 700 professionals and over 5000 children and young people. The performance has been shown:
- Manchester Secondary Schools
- Bury Secondary Schools
- Knowsley Secondary Schools
We have recently been commissioned by a number of local authorities across the North West to deliver the performance to children and young people. We aim to reach a minimum 15,000 young people by the end of 2016.
