UNTitled Theatre are delighted to have been shortlisted for the 2015 Pamela Sheridan Award – recognising pioneering approaches to relationships, sex and wellbeing education. We are passionate about our work with schools and our new play Hot Dogs written by Suhayla El Bushra is the collective voice of over 200 young people who all contributed to making this project such a success. It just goes to show how powerful the medium of theatre can be when tackling challenging and sensitive subject matter, particularly with young people. Being shortlisted by such a respected charity whose work with young people has proved vital confirms that we have a valid contribution to make to SRE and issues surrounding sexism and gender inequality in schools.
The winners will be announced at an award ceremony on Friday 6th March so keep your fingers and toes crossed for us!
The Pamela Sheridan Award is part of the UK Sexual Health Awards.
The Pamela Sheridan Award recognises innovation and good practice in services, projects or sex and relationships education (SRE) for young people.
The award was established in memory of Pamela Sheridan (1911–1994), an early sex education pioneer who had a lifelong involvement in family planning.
