Mandala is a diversity-led company creating dynamic new theatre with social justice at its heart. It runs three things: a professional touring company, dedicated young company and training with young people. Mandala Theatre Company works in a long-term partnership with Activate Learning and is based at City Of Oxford College. It is supported by Arts Council England and Oxford City Council.
“Pipeline” is the working title of a new play tackling the growing issue of school exclusion leading young people into a web of crime, violence and prison. It’s getting plaudits from invited audiences at rehearse reading performances as the company fine tunes the script with writer Avaes Mohammad.
Young people excluded from school are often the victims of gang grooming which can result in knife-crime, drug dealing and prison.
