Student Wellbeing Program
Educational theatre that addresses student mental health and emotional wellbeing.
Two characters are spiralling in different directions - one into stress, anxiety, perfectionism and overload, the other into depression and isolation.
When their lives collide, they are forced to change course.
The audience has the opportunity to see the characters play out an alternative path towards greater resilience and mental wellbeing. Through communication and connection, they discover there are different ways of coping. They see that help is available and they have the power to change their lives.
With a sophisticated script and contemporary music, Wired instantly engages even the most cynical audience to enhance mental health awareness in schools.

Northcote High School
Very clever performance, the 'what if' wind back, gave the students food for thought. Ours was a Friday afternoon performance, so the odds were stacked against the performers, but the students were engaged throughout! Thank you. Educational, enlightening, relevant to year 10 issues, effective, influential and entertaining. Highly recommended!"
A very well presented drama suitable to the needs of year 11 students. These are emerging issues for these students so it is good to mention them early in year 11 for year 12 stress. Highly recommended!
Xavier Catholic College
Supports year 10 health 'Understanding Mental Health' and year 9 health 'Enhancing Resilience'. Thought provoking, gave students the opportunity to reflect on their own circumstances. Highly recommended!

I was so impressed with the quality of the script and the range of characters and issues they dealt with. The actors' performances were excellent. When addressing the students the actors were warm, open and non judgemental. Well done! Highly recommended. 10/10
Taree High School
The performance was superb. The actors made it very transparent for the students and I'm sure a lot of this will be curbed at our school in future. An effective wellbeing resource for students and teachers. Highly recommended! 10/10
