LEEDS TIE"A powerful medium for opening up many issues for children, parents and professionals"
LEEDS THEATRE IN EDUCATION
See Us In Action
We specialise in the use of drama to enable people to talk safely about difficult issues. Starting with a play each programme also includes a workshop element & follow up packs.
A participatory play, devised in partnership with the BLAST Project and part of an Educational Theatre Programme that examines the issues around grooming & CSE, and supports work on health & wellbeing, safe relationships, homophobia & domestic abuse..
A new programme that will look at issues around knife crime, hate crime and domestic violence. The programme will consist of a participatory play, post play discussions, workshops and teaching support materials.
The Witch’s House Legacy Project
2020 marks 50 years since Leeds Playhouse TIE Company began. It’s 26 years since we left the Playhouse and we’re still creating and delivering educational theatre programmes for disadvantaged children and adults in Leeds.
As one of the few TIE companies still in existence, we want to try to capture and record the work so professionals, students and anyone who’s interested can see how and why it’s made and the impact it has on audiences.
So we’re planning a legacy project, using video, podcasts and social media to document the process of creating The Witch’s House from the search for funding, through devising, researching, writing, rehearsal to the pilot performances, scheduled for Summer 2020.
Alongside this we intend to create a record of Leeds TIE from the beginning in 1970 through its various stages of evolution to the present. As part of this history we want to invite people to share their memories of the work. We already have 3 contributions in our Legacy Project section and we’ll post more as we receive them.
If you want to follow the project, get involved and contribute or you just want more information then look for updates here, follow us on Facebook (link below) or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Big Give Campaign is now closed, thanks to everyone who donated!
June 2022 - We worked with a wonderful group of students from Leeds City College, supporting them to create an excellent piece of TIE which they performed to 3 spellbound groups of high school students! Well done Amber Launders and Purple Group! *** We recently heard of the sad death of Roger Chapman, founding director of Leeds Playhouse Theatre in Education Company. He was a great enthusiast and influencer and as well as running the company he organised national and international festivals in Leeds and beyond. After leaving the company he extended his work to production involving work across the world and will be sadly missed by many international friends as well as by Isy, their three children and six grandchildren. "When Roger gave me the job at Leeds TiE and accepted me into the team he changed my life. Working with Annalyn, John, Jim and Libby gave me the skills and courage to embark on what’s turned out to be a long career. So exciting, such a privilege, to be in TiE and around Leeds Playhouse at that time." Paul Copley. See Legacy Project for more. ...
