Chelsea’s Story is our internationally renowned applied theatre play that has proven highly effective in raising awareness around the sensitive issue of Child Sexual Exploitation.

It tells the story of two students who discover the diary of a girl called Chelsea.  Chelsea was a 15-year-old girl who, having fallen out with her family & friends, met a guy called Gary.  Gary was kind, understanding, had a nice car, had his own flat, and listened to her.  Unfortunately, Gary was not all that he seemed!  Chelsea’s Story is played out and examined by the two students who, along with their teacher, attempt to understand what happened.
