A Branching Story proudly funded by England's Illegal Money Lending Team. 

‘SHARK’ was commissioned by England's Illegal Money Lending Team to help raise awareness and highlight the risks and dangers around illegal money lending and loan sharks. 


Within this particular project we wanted to bring to the foreground and bust the many stereotypes that surround loan sharks, such as who they are and what they look like as well as the ‘types’ of people who borrow money from them. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from or what problems you may be experiencing personally, emotionally, mentally, physically, socially or financially. Loan sharks are greedy and they are always looking to take advantage and exploit people. 


CUT Preview and Trailer 

A future Branching Story centred around knife crime and youth violence. 

Although ‘CUT’ currently exists an applied theatre production. There has been interest from multiple organisations to transform ‘CUT’ into a Branching Story. 


We partnered up with Cheshire Police to produce a teaser trailer and a preview of ‘CUT’.The trailer and preview was made in support of Cheshire Constabulary’ contribution to Operation Sceptre, in April 2021. We worked with a fantastic cast and crew to take 'CUT' from stage to screen and to produce something that was as energetic and intimate as the stage production. 


While we await further interest, commission and confirmation with this particular project, why not take a look at our trailer and preview below.
