'Theatre was a big eye-opener for me'

An award-winning play will be performed at eight secondary schools in Wolverhampton as part of a new partnership.

Pupils at The Khalsa Academy, where many of the students have never been to the theatre before, enjoyed a specially staged production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

The tour forms part of the National Theatre's drive to introduce new audiences to theatre in a three-year partnership working with local theatres and schools.
