Crashing is our innovative and powerful play that raises awareness round Child Sexual Exploitation and how it can impact on boys and young men.

It tells the story of Eddie.  At 15 years old he lost his mom to cancer, lost his dad to depression, and ended up going absent and missing from home on a regular basis.  On one of these occasions, whilst out drinking with his mates at the park, Eddie was approached by Michael.  Michael was kind, good fun, and owned a shop with an empty flat above it.  He offered Eddie the chance to stay there whenever things at home were a bit rough, but unfortunately Michael had another agenda.

The play and post-show talk lasts for 55 minutes and covers:-

Healthy/Unhealthy Relationships

The Grooming Process, CSE & how it can happen to boys & young men

The warning signs of CSE

Avoiding victim blaming

Where to go for help & advice

Suitable for:-
