by Mark Hyde
Key Messages:
  • Bullying and how to get help
  • The importance of friendship
  • The dangers of carrying a knife

9-year-old Sam is being bullied by some older boys who he has met in the park after school. They have been demanding money from him which he has been taking from home in order to pay them. Polly, his best friend, tries to give advice but Sam is so frightened by the bullies that he brings a knife to school for protection.

The message of the play is that carrying a knife will never protect you and is highly dangerous. It encourages students that confiding in parents or teachers if being bullied is the best way to tackle the situation.

Client Feedback

Having spoken to all our authorities that held an event, the overview is ‘excellent’ – excellent show, excellent actors and excellent organisation.

Trading Standards South East region

Excellent feedback, well worth the money spent and great harm reduction work. Has led to interesting and useful conversations amongst the students, which we hope will lead to more informed choices in the future.

West Berkshire Council

It’s essential that we are equipping young people to make informed decisions about their future career progression. ‘Choices’ is an excellent mechanism to get students thinking about their next steps in a fun and engaging way.

Southern Universities Network

5 years of continued support of Last Orders is so worthwhile. The company are so professional and are able to explore the dangers of alcohol within a safe environment that somehow manages to push the topic much further than I could. The message is delivered in a non-patronising and age appropriate way.

Thames Valley Police

The performance did more in 2-hours than we could possibly deliver in a class. Great show, great performance. I would complement your staff on their professionalism – both in terms of the show but also in respecting the schools’ ethos.
