County Lines : Out in the Counties

A play aimed at raising awareness around the Criminal Exploitation of Children and Young People. AlterEgo Creative Solutions were commissioned by Norfolk Constabulary to develop an Applied Theatre play to raise awareness around Child Criminal Exploitation - specifically the strand of the County Lines drug trafficking model that sees vulnerable adults and young people living in regional areas of the UK targeted by organised groups and gangs (that have travelled from more urban city locations) to groom, trick, trap and manipulate them into trafficking drugs and sometimes weapons. https://opennorwich.org.uk/whats-on/gigs-events/county-lines/
