The 35-minute play explores the issues around the risk to young people by County Lines.
This fast moving, punchy, entertaining play aims to illustrate how young people are being targeted by exploitative drug traffickers, what the consequences are for those who find themselves caught up in these dangerous networks, the impact on their families and the communities in which they live, and where, and who, to go to for help. We want to engage, inform and enlighten, not only vulnerable teenagers, but also their teachers, their families and the wider community.
Students will have the opportunity of participating in workshops to create their own short plays based on County Lines, some of which will be selected to be part of INK Festival 2023!
