Little Fish Theatre

We saw Little Fish Theatre Company in action in a South London school in 2008. What struck us was that the actors seemed hardly older than the students they were performing for, which of course made them very accessible!

Little Fish is an off-shoot of Big Fish Theatre and works primarily in South London. It produces high-quality productions that challenge social injustice and inspire personal and community growth and change. Although they tackle issues like knife and gang crime, they also produce plays about drugs education, self esteem, sexual health, life skills, unwanted sexual contact, transition, change and family separation.

Most of their productions are delivered in pupil referral units, youth offending teams and secure units, youth clubs, community venues for young people, and of course primary and secondary schools.

Its play, "Slash", is a performance and workshop that explores the transition of a group of young people as it becomes a gang, its geography, and the use of weapons and criminal activity.
