UNDER Achievement may not sound like a dramatic of themes for a piece of theatre, but Theatr lolo has created a play especially for teenagers who basically don't like school.
during October and November they are touring Secondary Schools in Cardiff and the vale with their new production, '3D', which stands for Disaffected, Disappointed and Disappeared, which is what happens to youngsters, some of whom may have considerable talent, hut who become discouraged (yet another D!) with their apparent lack of success and leave the education system altogether.
Theatr Iolo has built up a reputation for delivering accessible hut challenging theatre, which is increasingly recognised as one of the most effective ways to raise awareness and encourage discussion of difficult issues.
One Headteachcr described it as "...an excellent production that stimulated and entertained." And a Comprehensive School teacher thought it was "A magnificent effort...and a thought-provoking programme."
The play has been part of the Theatre in Education Project for Secondary Schools tackling the problem of under-achievement.

THREE pupils fed up with lessons are stranded on an island with their teacher in Theatr Iolo's latest play.
By the time the ride goes out, each of them have had to rethink their attitudes towards school.
The play is about under-achievement and it is hoped that teenagers in schools across Cardiff will take it seriously.
The theatre in education project is touring the county as part of the Cardiff Achievement Project set up by Cardiff County Council.
The aim is to convince teenagers beginning their GCSE courses that whatever has happened in the past, it is not too late to start afresh and do well.
Actor Steffan Ellis, who plays teacher Mr Roberts, said the play and the workshop which follows have gone down well with pupils.
"We talked to teachers and pupils about under-achievement before we produced the play and I think they can identify with the characters," he said.
Tom Davies, Cardiff's education director, said: "The play is part of our campaign to convince young people that working hard will pay off in the long run.
"We have organised similar plays on bullying and racism which have been well received in schools."
The characters in the latest production are Howard, who realises he can fulfil his ambition to work with animals if he believes in himself; Michelle the truant, who decides to return to school to achieve her ambition of going to college, and Carl, who is determined to become an artist, despite his father's opposition.
