The HR team from Teach First were looking for a team challenge for their end of year away day. The organisers had the primary objective of engaging employees and providing a fun, dynamic experience for the group.
As the team were looking for something creative we developed the idea of creating an original piece of theatre from scratch - a Play in a Day.
Under the guidance of a professional theatre-maker and director, the team worked within a set framework and chosen genre to devise and rehearse their way to a finished theatre product.
With the theatre-maker offering guidance and support throughout the team enjoyed a fun, intensive full-day team building experience in the lovely Dutch Church near Bank. The team worked to create content, narrative, characters and script to deliver a final showcase performance at the end of just one day.
“We had a wonderful time doing something completely different to our day jobs. We weren’t sure what to expect and some were a little nervous about ‘acting’, but everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves and absolutely loved the energy it created. It helped us bond as a team and allowed us to get to know each other a little better. Helen was a great tutor who knew her work very well and she allowed us to be ourselves and let our inner child come out!” Marianne Esho, HR Manager Teach First.
