Theatr Iolo

Theatr Iolo-3D , , November 1, 1997
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.
