Skin Deep
by Mark Hyde & Angela Gilder
Key Messages:
  • Violence: protectionism and knife crime.
  • Extremism and prejudice: challenging thinking and developing understanding.
  • Grooming and Exploitation: how gangs’ function and the consequences of membership.

Denny’s home life is troubled. She is the daughter of a single parent mum who struggles with a drug addiction, meaning Denny is often left without money or food.  When Denny is groomed into a gang by an older man, it’s no surprise she’s easily influenced into doing what he wants.

Audiences witness as Denny begins carrying a knife for protection. Leading to a life changing event for Denny and those close to her. Based on true events, this hard-hitting show immediately connects with students through compelling dialogue and rap music.

Workshop leaders are trained and equipped to handle disclosures and signpost students.
