The jury is out as to whether this is a real school play or a publicity stunt for something as yet undisclosed.
But nevertheless, Kudos to the scriptwriter for disguising the swear words and popcorning the cocaine, the children I’m sure don’t have a clue (ahem).
The kids are cute, enjoying themselves and they’ve rehearsed their parts well – but although their dedication really does stand out in this clip, publicity stunt or not, this is just disturbing on so many levels.
If it is an actual play, I wonder what kind of responsibility the school feels it has over the kids who are within its sphere of influence?
What do you think? Harmless fun or disturbing?
