“Why isn’t there a delete button for stupid mistakes?”
Snap Happy explores sex and relationships, sexting and self-worth through the eyes of three teenagers living in a society where social media blurs the boundaries between private life and public image.
This production is suitable for year 8 upwards. The 45 minute show is followed by a 60 minute interactive workshop for 30 students at a time which explores the issues within each performance in more depth. We also supply additional print and web resources for every student who sees this show.

This production is available to book for 2014-15.
