Chickenshed’s BA (Hons) students present

These two end of year shows are the final pieces by students that have studied on our BA (Hons) in Inclusive Performance and represent the culmination of all their learning and creativity during their time here. Each year group has a unique vibrancy that inspires their work. These shows are only open to public once a year and are a great opportunity to see our unique creative processes in action. Expect to be moved, entertained and inspired.

Blame Game!

Through true stories and comedy ‘Blame Game!’ follows the hard hitting journey of the five stages of grooming. The show aims to bring awareness to the topic of grooming.


Unconscious Bias affects us all and cannot be controlled. But what if it could? In a world where prejudice, discrimination and bias is controlled and fixed with a simple pill (C.H.O.I.C.E), the world seems to be on the way to world peace. But how much control is too much control? And where do we draw the line between cultural appropriation and appreciation?

Dates: Wednesday 22 June – Saturday 25 June | Times: 6pm (Friday 2pm & 6pm)

Tickets: £5 | Age recommendation: 11+ (adult guidance)
