I’ve been working with a Young Offenders institute on trying to give the boys inside more of a voice, and then using that voice to try and stop other teenagers from committing similar crimes. This is part of a student project.
I’m looking for people with young playing voices who would be up for recording themselves reading a script I’ve written, based on the experience of and emotions from being locked away in a prison from a young age. Because I can’t physically meet and film you guys, this is more of a sound-based project.
There are three themes, expressed in the form of letters:
a message to a parent
a message to a partner
a message to a son
If you’re interested please direct message me and I will send you the sides!
Thank you and stay safe!

These boys all need to seem tough on the exterior with the other boys around them, but inside they're struggling and they want to express that to their loved ones. They're dealing with a lot and not many outlets to convey that. They're reflecting on who they've been and who they want to be going forward.
Male, aged 18 to 19
