Friends For All
Friends For All
8 year old Lexi doesn’t make friends as easily as some. If only her school would allow a non-school uniform day then she could be herself and find others like her. Inspired by Grandad’s hippy stories from the swinging 60s, she decides to fight the powers that be, namely her class teacher Mr Marsh and the class bully, Suzy.
Friends For All is an interactive spoken word performance for families, with rapping, dancing and far-out video projections. Poet and rapper Simon Mole performs in this humorous and moving piece, co-created with theatre maker Peader Kirk.

'Simon was able to bring out both confidence and creativity in two diverse groups of year 5 and 6 boys, who had otherwise been hard to engage... His work is both highly original & highly recommended'. Amy Norman, Chisenhale Primary School
