N-Act Theatre in Schools are winners of a prestigious award from the High Sheriff of Essex in recognition of “outstanding dedication to educating young people of Southend and adjoining areas on internet safety and the dangers of gang culture.”
N-Act performs interactive theatre projects for young people. The motivation is to use the power of interactive theatre to entertain, to ignite curiosity, provoke thought, and to educate young people to enable them to make informed choices.

N-Act are currently preparing their new play, ‘Invisible’ which touches on the very topical theme of mental health.
Denny’s story makes us think about perception, stigma, how to recognise if someone is suffering, how we can help, and when to call in the professionals. A touching and moving story which lifts our hearts.
The original script has been written using facts from professional wellbeing and medical consultants, and research from working with young people in schools, talking to parents and to sufferers of mental health conditions. It is a true story.
This will tour schools in June and July and we have a Community Showcase Performance – open to all – on Friday June 7th at 7.45pm at Leigh Community Centre. CLICK HERE to book your tickets.
With funding from Arts Council England, N-Act is able to offer 5 free performances as an introductory offer to schools.
Dates are already going quickly to the 50 schools who have booked productions in the past for the internet safety production and the show about knife crime and gangs. If you feel this is something you would like to see at the school where you teach or your children attend, contact Sharon Williams by email as soon as possible: firstname.lastname@example.org
