    THEMES

    ALL SAINTS' CE N20, Whetstone, London
    "Resolution"

      Our piece starts in the past, in the days of the Mafia. At the beginning, a normal group have a deadly encounter with this dangerous gang. Our piece then fast-forwards into the present. It's now up to the new generation to try and resolve things. Can they leave the mistakes of the past in the past or will this violence ruin another generation's future ?

    CHRISTCHURCH CE PRIMARY SCHOOL, Barnet, London
    "Finding Your Strength"

      As the earth was breathed into existence, the universe witnessed the greatest creation yet ... Man. A being created for a purpose, to be a force for good on earth... a fighter.
      How will Honey face the day-to-day struggles? Will she find her true purpose and emerge a survivor?

    ELIZABETH GARRETT ANDERSON LANGUAGE COLLEGE FOR GIRLS, Islington, London
    "Hollow Graphic"

      Everything is much clearer when it is black and white no questions asked, no grey bits in between and order will prevail. This is a place where colour and creativity are banned. A world where bland is right and different doesn't exist... or does it?

    FINCHLEY CATHOLIC BOYS' SCHOOL, Finchley, London,
    "Hidden Burdens"

      What's your problem?? Admitting you have problems in life can be hard. Putting up a front instead of speaking out to seek help in your life can lead to devastating circumstances as these two case studies reveal. One girl, one boy, two problems, one hope... Speak out.

    HONEYWELL JUNIOR SCHOOL, Battersea, London
    "Techno-Logic"

      In a time when children are increasingly obsessed with technology, we meet a computer-game-obsessed youth who prefers logging-on to working-out, who prefers engaging with the virtual world rather than the real world. When the "game" characters come to life and start to haunt her dreams, our youth makes an important lifestyle decision.

    ST MICHAEL'S and ALL ANGELS CHURCH of ENGLAND ACADEMY and CITY of LONDON, Camberwell, London,
    "Broken Territory"

      A new postcode has been created between two rival neighbourhoods. A battle has broken out for control and ownership of this territory. Our piece looks at the issues surrounding postcode wars, as well as the growing number of teenagers who call the streets their home. Can we be proud of our neighbourhoods without being prejudiced against others ?

    ST MICHAEL'S CATHOLIC GRAMMAR SCHOOL, North Finchley, London,
    "What's Important in Life ?"

      Open your mind!
      Breathe,
      You are about to experience our realisation of all the little miracles that surround us in our daily lives.
      We are living in a beautiful world here on earth, let's be glad.
      Heal the world and make it a better place, as Michael Jackson sang.
      Find your place, be your best, live and love all you can.
      Love is a power that can change everything.

    QUEEN ELIZABETH'S GIRLS' SCHOOL
    "A Virtuous Journey"

      The Devil has won! Satan has stolen the world's virtues and divided them amongst his seven deadly sins. Can the Archangel (with the support of her friends the Angels) travel through the sins to regain hope for the world?

    WINCHMORE SCHOOL, Winchmore Hill, London
    "Phobia"

      Anyone have a fear? How does this affect us? Are we paranoid? Maybe you have a phobia? Through our performance we will explore a range of different phobias and how they affect our everyday life.

    WOODCROFT PRIMARY SCHOOL, Edgware, London
    "Decisions"

      The trouble is that she loves it too much. Diane is popular, and she loves it! This production shows her jealous and selfish thoughts in the form of dark creatures encouraging her to make bad decisions. Can Diane overcome these bad thoughts or will she continue to cause sadness to those around her for the sake of popularity ?
