We are pleased to announce on the 18th & 19th October - The Saltmine Trust team will perform Switch Up · Year 7 – 18th October · Year 9 – 19th October Switch Up Meet best mates Dan and Jay, about to finish school and considering their career options. Dan is a rapper starting to gain exposure; Jay is an aspiring footballer with forthcoming trials for professional clubs. Both are desperate to leave 'The Wood', the estate where they live where gangs, crime and violence are the norm. But everything changes when Dan is robbed by a gang and seeks revenge by joining a rival gang – and Jay reluctantly tags along. The pressure is on – rival gangs start to threaten, tensions rise and the boys must decide whether or not to carry a knife. Will this situation force one of them to Switch Up? Saltmine Theatre Company's Switch Up is a thought-provoking show and workshop programme about the complex and interrelated issues of knife crime, gang violence and self-identity. To date, Switch Up has been performed at 19 schools to over 7000 pupils; in October 2019 it went on its third tour. Saltmine Theatre Company
