'Crashing' - Child Sexual Exploitation Drama
'Crashing' - Child Sexual Exploitation Drama
As part of the on-going campaign on Child Sexual Exploitation,
The More You Know, The More You See, the Safeguarding Board for Northern Ireland has
commissioned a first tour of Crashingacross Northern Ireland for post-primary single-sex boys’
schools. De La Salle College is one of eight schools in the Belfast region taking part in
this campaign.  The campaign is supported by the Department of Education
and the Education Authority for Northern Ireland.
The play Crashing by Alter Ego Creative Solutions Ltd Theatre Company
aims to raise awareness of how Child Sexual Exploitation can specifically affect boys
and young men. The play tells the story of Eddie.  At 15 Eddie, lost his mum to cancer, his dad
to depression and found himself out on the street.  Whilst sleeping in a doorway
Eddie is approached by Michael.  Michael is kind, good fun and owned a shop with an
empty flat above it.  He offers Eddie the chance to stay there until he gets himself back
on his feet.  Unfortunately Michael is not all that he seems to be.
The producers of Crashing have worked hard to develop an innovative way of
engaging boys and young men in discussions about the sensitive issue of Child Sexual
Exploitation in an age appropriate way. The production explores the following
issues in an educational and informative way without being overtly graphic or explicit;
·         How Child Sexual Exploitation can – and does – happen to boys
and young men
·         What makes a Healthy Relationship
·         What makes and Unhealthy Relationship
·         The Grooming Process, Child Sexual Exploitation and the different
models and methods
·         Where to go for help and advice

The drama aims to empower boys and young men and provide them with the
skills and knowledge necessary to protect themselves. In order to make the production
relevant to the audience, the play will be delivered by Northern Irish actors.   The drama
lasts around 30 minutes and then there is the opportunity for a Q & A session
from the actors.
