CountyLines is our innovative applied theatre play that raises awareness around the County Lines model of Child Criminal Exploitation.

Meet Dex.  He’s a nice guy.  He’ll offer you money.  He’ll offer you drugs.  He’ll be generous.  He’ll make you feel important.  He’ll make you feel part of something.  He’ll make your life exciting.  He’ll do whatever it takes to get you working for him & his mates… and when you do…

Meet Dex.  He’s a scary guy.  He’ll say you owe him money.  He’ll make you deal drugs & move packages.  He’ll blackmail you.  He’ll be violent.  He’ll make you terrified.  He’ll threaten your family.  He’ll turn your life upside down.  He’ll do whatever it takes to keep you working for him & his mates…  & he’s good at it!
