What’s the play about?

Willow (Wi) and Finn (Fi) are best friends. They have been through nursery together, had playdates and even been on holiday together. Nothing can separate these two very best friends. Finn is the captain of the football team and Willow is a keen gymnast. Finn has a vlog and Instagram, Snapchat and many other apps. One day whilst playing in the park Finn asks Willow to prank call some of his friends from her phone as they won’t know whose number it is. After several calls the pair fall about laughing. Finn then suggests Willow could show off her skills on YouTube in the same way he does to get more followers. Finn uses his phone to film Willow in the park doing handstands and cartwheels. Willow thinks nothing of it, but does a couple of handstands unaware she is revealing her underwear. She also falls over a few times which the two find comical and her skirt goes over her head. When they look at the footage later Finn starts to have playful banter with Willow over her falling over, showing her underwear and it being caught on film. Willow begs him to delete the videos. He repeats It’s funny, Don’t worry I won’t share it. What happens next is a very unpleasant learning journey for both children.

How does it work in our school?

Aimed at KS2, the performance by professional actors lasts 60 minutes with hot seating of the characters for a further 30 minutes. We will perform for all of KS2 together (up to 150 pupils). We offer quality teaching and learning and feel that combining the performance with children discussing the issues raised in a classroom setting enhances their overall learning experience. The package includes an additional Internet Safety workshop or training at ZERO COST.

What does our school need to provide?
