Baldy Bane

On Wednesday the 23rd of October, Baldly Bane Theatre Company came to Kirkintilloch High School. Their performance was based around about abuse in relationships. They acted out a story about a girl who is in a relationship with a guy who she loves. She sometimes feels uncomfortable but doesn’t tell anyone and carries on with the relationship. The boyfriend was aggressive and suspicious of everything his girlfriend did. One of the key messages that was shown in the drama was to tell someone if you’re being abused within a relationship and don’t keep quiet. Following the performance, they asked us questions about the drama and we participated in hot seating (we ask questions to the characters and they reply in character). This gave us a more in-depth understanding of who the characters were. I thought the performance and they way they delivered the message was excellent.
