In Spring 2017, Ten Ten Theatre was asked by TRAC – a group of 16 religious congregations of sisters from across the UK – to consider producing a new piece of work which helps young people to explore:
The issue of modern slavery;
The problem with pornography;
The dignity of the human person.
Following a meeting between Sister Patricia Mulhall (a founding member of TRAC), Martin O’Brien (the Artistic Director of Ten Ten) and representatives from all of the religious orders involved in TRAC, it was decided that Ten Ten would aim to produce a new theatre play for schools, following the huge success of their production of “This Is My Body”. This new play, provisionally titled “Grace“, would differ from “This Is My Body” in the following ways:
It would tell a story about trafficking within the UK;
It would not focus on the victim but on the fight against slavery, making it more empowering for the audience;
It would be appropriate for young people aged 14+;
It would be easier and cheaper to stage.
Please consider helping The Ten Ten Charitable Trust to support this important project. To take this new production to 25 secondary schools in Spring 2018 will cost £15,000. Ten Ten has already generated £5,562.50 plus it is anticipated that £6,875 will be raised through fees charged. Therefore, our current fundraising target is £2,562.50. We aim to raise this by August 2017 in order to enable the project.
