Three secondary schools in Brent are working on an anti bullying play which will culminate in a special symposium in Kilburn next month.
Box Clever Theatre Company is bringing The Hate Play to the Tricycle Theatre in Kilburn High Road on November 6, where human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell will be guest speaker.
Whitefield School in Claremont Road, Cricklewood, Newman Catholic College in Harlesden Road, Harlesden, and Claremont High School Academy in Claremont Avenue, Kenton, are involved in the inter-school project.
The Hate Play is a 75-minute interactive performance portraying the devastating effects bullying can have on the emotional well-being, health and social cohesion of a group of young people.
It addresses the reality of bullying, specifically hate crime, and also explores the dynamics of teenage friendships and peer pressure.

Over a series of dates, pupils perform the play and then participate in workshops and talks about it.
All the achievements of the project and the students’ work will be celebrated at the final symposium in November.
The project is supported by the John Lyon’s Charity, which promotes the life chances of young people through education.
