Taisha and the Time Traveller


Taisha is fed up. Her family is absorbed with her sisters wedding to Hakan, but no one seems to understand or listen to her. She meets Eyla, a time traveller, who has no idea who he is or where he came from. Taisha takes him on a journey introducing him to her rich multi-cultural world. Can Eyla find a culture of his own and will Taisha work out her difficulties with her own family?

Theatre-In-Education play for 9 – 12 years at Primary, Secondary and Special schools

This play focuses on cultural identity, exploring social relationships amongst peer groups, across and within races and families.

The young people learnt to:

  • Have pride in their culture and to share and celebrate their traditions;
  • Confront racism if they see or experience it;
  • Take personal responsibility for future change;
  • Take responsibility for their environment

When you know who you are
What you want
Where you're going
You feel good about yourself
You allow others to be
What they want to be
Sharing your feelings with your family
Challenging unfairness
In your community
You are a citizen
That's your identity
