WY-FI partners with The University of Leeds to produce research-based drama

University-of-Leeds_drama-production_group.jpgWe’ve been working with The University Of Leeds to help develop ‘Stuart: A Life Cycle’ – a research-based drama about the criminal justice system.

We took a group of volunteers and beneficiaries to watch the live performance -which was produced by a group of theatre and performance students at The University of Leeds, who worked with Ally Walsh from the School of Performance and Cultural Industries.

The performance considers Stuart’s story – childhood, influences and the difficulties of desisting from crime when addiction is involved, and invite the audience to discuss the performance afterwards in a Q&A session.

The University of Leeds has been working with partners in the criminal justice sector. WY-FI is one of the lead partners. Other lead partners are Life Experience, Leeds Magistrate’s Court and the probation service.
