Inspired by a number of innovative theatre projects around the country, Oldham Theatre Workshop in partnership with Oldham Council’s Community Safety team and Oldham College have come together to create an immersive theatre experience and conversation. ‘Under The Skin’ is aimed at helping young people aged 13-18 to better understand the impacts of knife and weapon related crime.
