But Then It Began... was a T.I.Eproduction that toured to Essex and Kent based schools in 2016. This show was a hard hitting and playful take on school life that tackled issues of homophobia, sexual education and equality and diversity. Inspired by the writings of Dennis Kelly and Luke Norris this dynamic and fact explicit show held the mirror up on teenage life and homophobic abuse. A fusion of dynamic physical performances, urban characters and witty scripture; this piece aimed to educate its audience. After all, education prevents ignorance.
