A live performance that takes a daring look at the hurtful games we play to give ourselves a false sense of power and belonging.
Samantha’s group spread rumours, give death stares and alienate her. She becomes obsessed with body image and dieting. She is constantly competing with other girls in the media, in the playground and on social websites.
Desperate to fit in at school, Jimmy succumbs to peer pressure and becomes the tough guy - harassing and bullying other students with homophobic remarks, deliberately failing maths and playing the fool. He gets involved in binge drinking and puts himself in dangerous situations.
They begin to realise their interactions on Facebook and by SMS could have lifelong implications.
Finally, one explosive confrontation forces them to realise that unrealistic expectations and peer pressure can lead to destructive behaviour.
The Hurting Game is an entertaining way to show students how ongoing negative relationships, at school and online, affect self-esteem. The show is action packed, humorous and episodic engaging even the toughest audience.
