The Playhouse Company crime-stop drama, Just Don’t, is currently touring to schools in KZN.

In response to popular demand among teachers and learners, the Playhouse Company once again presents this crime-stop drama based on real-life experiences which powerfully promotes the message: ‘Is crime worth it?’

“The Playhouse Company fulfils an important part of its mandate in presenting this year’s Schools Programme to learners in our province,” says Playhouse Company Chief Executive Officer and Artistic Director, Linda Bukhosini. “Just Don’t is geared to assist educators in equipping learners for meaningful and successful living in a rapidly changing society.”

“In presenting this production, we are reinforcing the Education Department’s quest to highlight life orientation priorities as a vitally important learning area in schools curricula throughout KwaZulu-Natal,” Bukhosini continues. “By highlighting the need for young people to seek responsible lifestyle choices, The Playhouse Company’s 2012 Schools Programme underlines the value of responsible citizenship and so contributes significantly to the ethic of nation-building among the youth of our country.”

The production is now touring on The Playhouse Mobile Stage until March 12. Admission is free for all learners. Schools interested in securing bookings for Just Don’t should contact Tino Chihombori at The Playhouse Company on 031-369 9456 or on email at
