Kibble welcomes gritty drama


Kibble recently played host to Kamikaze, a gritty drama made for young people about the dangers posed by knife crime and gang culture.

The play focuses on the issues faced by thousands of young people across the UK every day; gang culture, knife crime, family dilemmas, kinship carers and their own relationships.

Written by playwright Mark MacNicol and produced by Baldy Bane Theatre Company, the drama speaks to young people on their own terms, aiming to entertain them and provoke discussion and debate about similar issues they might be facing in their own lives.

Kibble has been instrumental in supporting the project, a process that culminated with a performance of Kamikaze at the Gannochy Trust Centre for Expressive Arts.

Playwright Mark MacNicol was full of appreciation for this support and said: “If this project does get a tour of Scottish schools or whatever type of facility in the future, it would not have happened without Kibble.”

The show has prompted an energetic response from staff and students at Kibble, with animated discussions taking place on campus.

Laura Cairns, Kibble’s drama teacher said: “Kamikaze totally engaged our young people from the moment the play started. This is despite many of them never having experienced live theatre. It was a great stimulus for discussion and follow up class work across our curriculum.”

Callum Couston, Company Manager of Baldy Bane Theatre Company who produced the play said: “In working with Mark MacNicol on his play Kamikaze we hope to tour this play across Scotland to young people of secondary school age and promote discussion and better awareness of the damage that knife crime and gang culture can cause our society.”
