Crush is a powerful drama that looks at the issues surrounding abuse in teenage relationships, gender stereotyping and the media’s impact on young people’s body image and behaviour.

The production helps to achieve the aims of the Curriculum for Excellence both in terms of empowering young people to build healthy relationships in the future and to better support those affected by domestic abuse at present.

The production is followed by a post show session where pupils will be given the opportunity to discuss the issues raised, as well as investigate the societal pressures and norms they see as being at the root of the situation. During the session they have the opportunity to address and challenge the characters.

There is also a 28min film of Crush, which can be accompanied by a facilitated discussion.
