Crime of the Century is a hard-hitting, raw piece of theatre which explores the issues surrounding gang violence. Using words and movement alongside a contemporary score of hip-hop and dance music, the performance packs a frightening punch and acts as a positive tool in the fight against the savagery of knife crime.
Crime of the Century was created in response to a number of fatal stabbings which have affected staff, students and members of Chickenshed over the last decade. Since then, it has toured theatres and schools alongside an innovative workshop programme for secondary school students. Tragically, ongoing events around this issue have highlighted its continuing need and impact.
“Fearless, unflinching, technically superb and laced with humanity.” Independent “It would be senseless for this production not to tour every senior school in Britain. The poignancy and power of Chickenshed’s piece earns it the right to be noticed and commended; not only by theatre critics but by politicians.” What’s on Stage ***** “…if the twenty first century will be remembered as the time we let our children kill each other, Chickenshed will be remembered as the theatre company who had the guts to ask how and why.” Time Out 5*****
