Contender Charlie

Contender Charlie support young people in the exploration of their emotional development and creative potential. They support those who mentor, teach or lead students in the promotion of inspiring, effective and ethical practice.

They use the power of storytelling and mythology to enhance and inspire the creative learning of young people as well as their teachers and school leaders.

Contender Charlie also specialise in bringing the plays of Shakespeare and other mythological stories to life within a school environment; be it with issues relevant to the classroom or the staffroom. Along with our sister company Olivier Mythodrama we have been using these stories for courses that are receiving outstanding feedback at conferences all over Britain.

China Plate works with Contender Charlie as co-producers of Macbeth – Blood Will Have Blood, a show that has now toured to over 10,000 young people across the UK.
