"Your material is a great help to me. I work in a facility for
young male offenders and teach on a special wing for
'special needs and other problems.' The age group is 18-21.
My skills are not immediately related to performing arts,
but using your script plays are a great help.
"Oliver Twist was a big success, the Governors were delighted with the guys' performance. It has helped develop their self-esteem and their confidence, plus working with others. Obviously it was not of high standard, but to them, it was an outstanding achievement. And if it helps towards our efforts in reducing re-offending, everyone is happy. The 'Oliver Twist' performance by these guys was a huge success for self-esteem; all of them have recently received achievement awards from the head governor."
