ComeUnity: Diverse plays for Diverse Communities No.3
Black Lives Matter!
How lucky we are to teach students from such a rich tapestry of cultures and backgrounds!
Does our curriculum reflect and represent the voices and identities in our classroom?
Perhaps it’s time to dust off the shelves! (And burn all copies of Blood Brothers!)
Through sharing and exploring a diverse range of new or overlooked plays and playwrights, we can take a step in the right direction and decolonise our set texts and curriculum.
