A FREE performance for parents, carers and professionals about child sexual exploitation (CSE) 
An innovative means of illustrating how CSE can happen to young men as well as young woman, performanced by the creative team behind the hugely successful 'Chelsea's Choice'.

The play, which is followed by an actor facilitated post-show talk exploring the issues raised, was developed out of a growing need to illustrate the narrative on how CSE can affect boys & young men. It tells the story of Eddie.  At 15 years old he lost his mum to cancer, lost his dad to depression and found himself out on the street.  Whilst sleeping in a shop doorway Eddie was approached by Michael.  Michael was kind, good fun and owned a shop with an empty flat above it.  He offered Eddie the chance to stay there until he got back on his feet, but unfortunately Michael had another agenda……….
The play has proven highly effective at covering:
  • How child exploitation can and does happen to boys and young men
  • what makes a health relationship
  • what makes an unhealhty relationship
  • the grooming process, child sexual exploitation and the differing models and methods
  • where to go for help and advice
For adult audiences it also:
  • Raises awarenss of the importance of acknowledging, identifying and referring male victims of CSE
  • Raises awarenss of the importance of making referrals based on warning signs and not on gender
