Pressure Drop

Pressure Drop has now toured across schools in Hackney and wider London twice, bringing the issues young people face to life on stage and facilitating impactful workshops and conversations.

Pressure Drop

Pressure Drop has been made possible thanks to the generous funding of the Walk in My Shoes campaign and our Patron Idris Elba.

Pressure Drop has been developed by and for young people in London to explore the societal issues that they face, and toured schools in Hackney in November 2022. We then brought Pressure Drop to The Yard Theatre in April of 2023 for a week of performances, post-show discussions and workshops, before its second tour across schools in London.
