Performers aim to combat racism
Racism play 'Other People's Shoes'
Performers will take the play to 50 schools in Devon and Cornwall
Students at schools across Devon and Cornwall are taking part in drama workshops to help combat racism.

"Other People's Shoes" is a play about prejudice, fear and hate, which explores racist attitudes.

It will be shown to children of all ages and is currently being performed at the Sir John Hunt Community College in Plymouth.

Less than 1% of the students come from ethnic minorities, but many say they have witnessed racism elsewhere.

The play will be performed at 50 schools across the region and there will be public performances at the Barbican Theatre in Plymouth on 12 November.
