Young Theatre Makers is a bilingual learning scheme that uses playscripts as a framework for discussion and critical thinking. Intended for secondary school students, Young Theatre Makers focuses on the process of analysing and understanding a play and creating a work-in-progress staging in the theatre. Theatre mirrors life. Specially written by playwrights from Hong Kong, the countries of “One Belt One Road”, the UK and Sweden, the themes of these eight plays resonate with the students, bringing up interesting debate and dialogue about themselves and the world around them. By combining performance and discussion, we hope to uncover just how much the arts can help students understand life.
