About the Play

My Name is Tom is a new play by Enfield based playwright Alan Spence and his company Theatre is Real Life Productions, which is was performed in January 2016 at The Dugdale Centre, Enfield.

The play explores the problem of e-safety and new media for young people and adults and is a typical boy meets girl story that goes horribly wrong. When Paris and Darnell are exposed, they aren’t the only ones.

The play is part of an inter-generational education project supported by Enfield Council, the Enfield Residents Priority Fund, Face Front Inclusive Theatre, St Anne’s Catholic High School (Enfield) Woodside High and Riverside Schools (Haringey) and the BBC Get Creative scheme.

Also featured in the project is a film of the performance, an education pack with contributions from young people and adults. In addition, there will be a outreach sessions and workshops for schools and the wider community.
