REP follows nine young offenders from different London boroughs who are thrown together into a Community Theatre project as part of their Youth Rehabilitation Orders. Kimberly, a middle-class Theatre Director, must gain their trust and help but mostly learn from them in order to succeed.
REP explores the importance of community and creative engagement amongst young people and aims to shed light on the importance of creative engagement in the youth rehabilitation system. The new play is about perception, privilege, and potential.
Originally devised by Theatre Peckham Rep Company 2019.
