Mockingbird High


Children used to be seen

and not heard…

until now…

“ Claire and John’s pro-active approach to the injustices that so many women and children suffer in our community is to be commended and supported. I hope people will recognise the value of their work and support this project.

Theatre is all about telling the untold stories and these stories need to be heard by us all.”

Maxine Peake


Mockingbird High

MOCKINGBIRD HIGH is empty and dark. However, in a locked classroom, deep in the basement, a light still burns. Two pupils are conducting an unusual experiment – the trial of their Mother for neglect and abuse. If guilty, there’s only one sentence – death…

Mockingbird High

is a compelling and lyrical account of the
devastating impact of domestic abuse on two teenage children and their mother.

Exploring the ‘cycle of violence’, safeguarding, sexual bullying, patterns of abusive behaviour and the long-term impact on children. An essential experience for anyone working in the field of safeguarding children.
