This year Intext Performance is delighted to celebrate 20 years of high quality professional theatre and storytelling in schools. Since 1997 the company has produced more than 25 different story sessions mixing traditional tales and original writing, and 9 new plays based on classic texts. Many of these have been accompanied by literacy workshops. These link a number of curriculum areas. This year there is an added focus on raising boys' achievement in literacy, speaking and listening.
