Caught in the Net LogoCaught in the Net, a new award-winning play exploring the dangers of the internet, had its first Open Preview at the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe.

The production, written with high-school aged children in mind but providing an eye-opening experience for all, won this year’s UK ESET CyberSmart Awards, which recognise schools, organisations and individuals dedicated to internet safety and working to keep everyone secure online. Please see the Fife Free Press and Telegraph articles on our success, as well as our blog post on the subject.

The thought-provoking script is founded on original research into the dangers perceived by young people, and touches on issues like cyber-bullying, pro-anorexia sites, identity theft, online grooming and fraudulent use of social networking sites.

Performed by young people with experience of many of these issues themselves, this production provides a shocking and engaging insight into the hidden dangers of cyberspace.

 “Caught in the Net stood out for its novel and engaging approach to education in online safety and it has had a tangible impact with young people becoming much more online safety-conscious as a result.”

Paul Brooks, chief executive and owner of ESET, sponsor of the CyberSmart Awards
