Friday Friends (Mate Crime) - The Lawnmowers Theatre Company (Here is a 5 min promo of the Mate Crime training package show so you get a little sneaky peek of what to expect.)
Come and join the Lawnmowers Theatre Company, a theatre company ran by for and with people with learning disabilities as they explore the issue of mate crime through a live show.
The training will involve a 20-minute showing of their play called "Friday Friends." This play highlights the risks that People with Learning disabilities face and how vulnerable they can be. We discuss what true friendship means and how people vulnerabilities can be exploited. You will also get the chance to look at the failings to protect our character and how it could have gone better by rerunning the play to see what support and choice was available to the character.
Our seasoned and highly trained learning disabled actors will also train your safeguarding gut. You will meet in role characters where you as the learner will decided whether there is a true safe guarding risk and need to act.
Come and join the Lawnmowers for an interactive 2-hour exploration learning experience informed by lived experience. The Lawnmowers hope to see you there.
