Knife Act – Wednesday 14th February

You are invited to a free Open Dress rehearsal of Hearth’s new production- Knife Act by Jimmy Whiteaker – a play about Self Harm.

Through an entire classroom of characters, a teacher preparing for Ofsted, snippets of song and a dull detention, we see two people emerge in bright focus:  a student struggling with his emotions – self injuring;  a teacher struggling to keep going – and using food.

Is a classroom big enough to hold these truths?  Will the student tell his secret?

Followed by wine and nibbles..

We hope you’ll stay afterwards to be participants in a rehearsal of our interactive Forum Theatre workshop in which we explore some of the issues of health and education raised by the play.

Wednesday February 14
