‘Girl A’ – A Bioethics Dramatic Enquiry
Thinking Space collaborated with Cap-A-Pie to support Science Teachers at Thistley Hough High School in the creation of their own Dramatic Enquiry for key stage four students. The Dramatic Enquiry ‘Girl A’ was the result: an interactive show fusing Philosophy for Children, Theatre in Education and the GCSE national curriculum.
‘Girl A’ invited its audience to participate in the near-future trial of a young girl accused of evading compulsory genetic screening. As they took part, the audience explored the science of inherited diseases engaging with some of the many ethical dilemmas new understanding, information and technology creates.
The wonderful Gordon Poad devised, directed and produced this one and the photography contained in the trailer below is by Andrew Billington @ Vital Photo
