Drama Helps to Tackle Domestic Abuse Amongst the Young

At the end of November, the Campaign White Ribbon tackled the problem of Domestic Abuse.

“Young people and schools have a very big part to play,” explained Joyce Watson AM who has been one of the leaders of the campaign from the very beginning.

“Education is more than teachers, pupils and classrooms. That is why we were very pleased that Kirsty Williams, the Minster for Education and Lifelong Learning in the Government of Wales, agreed to sponsor A Peer Education Production in the Neuadd of the Welsh Assembly’s Senedd.”

Relationships Shouldn’t Hurt is a professionally written play which has been performed a number of times by Mid Powys Youth Theatre across venues in Powys.

It aims to tackle the issues facing young people in unhealthy relationships. The play can be used as a way to address unhealthy behaviour in teenage relationships. It can be viewed as a free tool and resource for High Schools and can be used in Drama classes and in Personal and Social Educational sessions.

If you live in the Ammanford area and you would like another production by the young people of Mess Up The Mess but this time in a festive show then come along to the Miners’ Theatre Ammanford on either Saturday 16th December 7.30 pm
or Sunday 17th December 14.30 pm.

In this case it will be a matter of expecting the unexpected, fairy tales not quite how you remember them, familiar characters with contemporary twists, song, movement, magic and mayhem along the way! Kick start your festive season and prepare to be entertained the Mess Up The Mess way!

Drama sy’n mynd i’r afael â chamdrin ymhlith yr ifainc

Tua ddiwedd Mis Tachwedd dyma ymgyrch y Rhuban Gwyn yn defnyddio drama i fynd i’r afael â chamdrin yn y cartref.

“Mae gan yr ifainc ac ysgolion rhan bwysig i chwarae,” esboniodd Joyce Watson AC sydd wedi bod yn un o arweinwyr yr ymgyrch o’r cychwyn cyntaf.

“Mae addysg yn fwy nac athrawon, dysgyblion ac ystafellodd. Dyna pam pleser oedd croesawu Kirsty Willams, y Gweinidog dros Addysg a Dysgu Gydol Oes i noddi cynyrchiad Addysg Gyfartal yn Neuadd Senedd Cynulliad Cymru.”

Relationships Shouldn’t Hurt yw teitl drama wedi ei ysgrifennu yn broffesiynnol sydd wedi ei actio sawl gwaith gan Gwmni Ieuenctid Canolbarth Powys ar draws y sir.

Ei nod yw ymdopi â phryderon pobl ifainc mewn perthynas afiach. Mae gan y ddrama neges at berthynas afiach ymhlith y rhai yn eu harddegau. Dyma fodd ac adnoddau ar gyfer gwersi drama ac Addysg Gymdeithasol.

Os ydych yn byw yng ngyffiniau Rhydaman ac yn awyddus i weld cynyrchiad arall gan bobl ifainc Mess Up The Mess ond y tro yma mewn sioe Nadoligaidd, yna dewch at Theatr y Glowyr Rhydaman ar naill ai Dydd Sadwrn 16 Rhagfyr am 7.30 yr hwyr neu ar Ddydd Sul 17 Rhagfyr 14.20 y prynhawn.

Os felly, dewch i ddisgwyl yr annisgwyl, storiai meithrin anghyffredin, cymeriadau traddodiadol gwahanol, a chawlach ym mobman. Cewch adloniant rhyfedd iawn!
