The Buzzed - a play about drugs and mental health
Students from Northampton College visited Huxlow Science College to perform their powerful and thought provoking play, The Buzzed. The play follows the story of 13 year old Charlotte who meets her older self at 17 and 22 years of age. The story follows her teenage years, drinking and smoking which eventually leads to illegal drugs.
It is part of a county wide tour of 20 secondary schools in Northamptonshire, and is being delivered in conjunction with the TALK OUT LOUD mental health programme. which is jointly funded by Northamptonshire County Council and the local NHS.
The play is used as a way to encourage young people to talk about mental health and the effect that drugs and alcohol can have on us and those around us.
One student said "It was amazing, so good, that I want to see it again!"
