Big Telly Theatre Company in association with the DOENI, PSNI and local politicians are out to make an impact!
And that’s aexactly what they did as Big Telly hit 18 schools with 12 PSNI officers and 12 professional actors to teach a very valuable lesson with Operation CARnage.
In a series of staged events entitled Operation CARnage, professional actors from the regional theatre company, simultaneously re-enacted the aftermath of dangerous driving incidents at assemblies in post-primary schools throughout the province - Limavady Grammar, Cross & Passion College Ballycastle, Limavady High School, St Patrick’s College Maghera, Holy Trinity College Cookstown, St Colm’s Draperstown, St Comhghall’s College Lisnaskea and Sacred Heart College Omagh.
Renowned for using theatre and educational outreach to highlight social issues, Big Telly have been working alongside school staff, District Policing Partnership to devise a piece of theatre designed to shock and engage young people, stressing to them the devasting consequences of dangerous driving .
Using the mediums of theatre, educational workshops and social media the theatre company are hoping to tap into the minds of young people with
a message that it affects everyone.
