Sophie is confronted by her eating disorder ads anorexia hits the headlines, and she confides in her Mum. Will Sophie seek help and make a recovery ?

    BRECHIN HIGH SCHOOL
    "Tolerance for Peace"

      A dance interpretation of how tolerance among different factions of society can lead to peace. We want to break barriers and strive to combat prejudice. we acknowledge that we are all separate cogs in the same machine and we are all positive about working together.

    FORFAR ACADEMY

      Life in plastic isn't fantastic. We are developing the idea of pressures on teenagers to promote awareness and improve decision-making. Be yourself - don't follow the crowd !

    MONTROSE ACADEMY

      Angel has suffered for many months at the hands of her abusive boyfriend. One noight she goes out clubbing. He shows up at the club to apologise for what he has done earlier: however, once behind closed doors, he becomes the same stranger she has come to fear. Will he get the chance to apologise this time ?

    WEBSTER'S HIGH SCHOOL
    "Alice in Wonderland"

      Join us as we venture through the peculiar anthropomorphic world of Alice. Webster's High School's performance transports you through the looking glass to the darker side of Wonderland.
