Supported by HEART, the Theatre of Debate performed their thought-provoking play, ‘People are Messy’, to students across the region, at seven West Yorkshire schools during March 2016. A public performance of the play was also hosted by the University of Leeds.
‘People are Messy’ play targets pupils aged 13 + and engages its audiences in an informed debate around PPI (patient and public involvement) and the social and ethical issues that it raises. The Theatre of Debate® programme is designed for a whole year group and consists of a stimulating performance and a thought-provoking, facilitated audience debate, enhanced by electronic voting technology. In addition, the project is supported by preparatory worksheets and follow up resources, available online.
‘People are Messy’ has been developed in partnership with the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Oxford Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), a partnership of OUH NHS Foundation Trust and the University of Oxford, as a Theatre production designed to support the achievement of attainment targets outlined in Key Stages 4 in Science, English, Drama, ICT, PSHE and RS.
