It’s 2030 and the earth is being hit by frequent shockwaves making the earth unstable for human life. 
Eldora must teach her friends the golden rule to save the earth.
This play devised by the ‘Younger Yard’ group explores themes around friendship, bullying and acceptance. Written by Lisa Jackson and directed by Lisa Jackson and Tatenda Chitsamba.
