Welwyn Hatfield secondary schools have been treated to a play outlining the difficulties of being a young carer.
Every day this week, Year 7 and 8 students have been watching a powerful play funded by Welwyn Hatfield Youth Council, which follows the trials and tribulations of young carer Jas.
The 50-minute play, named Freefall, stars Kirsty Jackson, who is the only character.
It was performed at Sir Frederic Osborn School, Stanborough, Bishop’s Hatfield Girls’ and Onslow St Audrey’s, and will be shown at Monk’s Walk tomorrow.
Welwyn Hatfield mayor Patricia Mabbott said: “I was very impressed with the performance.
“The students were engrossed from start to finish and the actor certainly conveyed the message brilliantly.
“When a performance such as this is viewed in schools, it can only have a good outcome and I’m sure it will stay in the minds of the audience – I know it will in mine.”
