The It’s Not Fair!’ is a professional, engaging, eye-opening blend of theatre, storytelling and music on National Tour to school halls. Five real stories are woven together by two circus storytelling characters. An excellent opportunity for pupils to become more educated, challenged and equipped to engage with the issues of human trafficking and slavery. The play deals with complex issues in a very accessible and engaging way. Your pupils will be armed with some simple practical steps that they can use to help change the world! Although thought-provoking the content is not graphic or offensive. It informs but also inspires and brings hope. Suitable for 11 years+. Fits well with many areas of the curriculum.
Kwame just wants to earn enough money to buy a bike… Maya wants to take care of her family… Alyssa doesn’t have a choice… The ‘It’s Not Fair!’ is a collection of tales taken from all over the world. Two circus storytelling characters take us on a journey from the cocoa farms of the Ivory Coast… to the dingy bars of the back streets of Thailand… behind the respectable facade of a London home… and into the offices of an anti-trafficking organisation – who are making a difference, one person at a time…

“The workshops were structured so that the students became investigators in a human trafficking case. It was a brilliant way of engaging them and allowing them to explore the issues using a range of Drama techniques!”
