The School Yard is an interactive online story based in London. I wish to create a drama series, using the characters Tori, Jonah, Zara and Chris, unfolding with help from the readers, after giving feedback.
It will explore how difficult choices are made within their faiths, and cultural differences. Additional themes are social and economical struggle, diabetes, ADHD, gang culture and substance abuse. I wish to create a platform where people can come together online and discuss and write about similar experiences.
The outcome will be an on-line writing community and Drama series with links to support groups and charities.
