Abstract: In May 2007, 15-year old Jordan Manners was shot and killed in the hallway of his Toronto school. In June 2007, the Toronto District School Board commissioned an investigation into school safety, which resulted in a report entitled The Road to Health. In February 2008, in an attempt to provoke discussion about the investigative report among teacher candidates and teacher educators in Toronto, I adapted The Road to Health into a performance script. The script, directed by MA student and theatre artist Jocelyn Wickett, was performed in September 2008, for 500 teacher candidates at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education’s annual Safe Schools Conference. This paper will discuss the task of adapting a very large investigative report on school safety into a performance for the stage and provide an example of how arts-based researchers or research-based artists can assist in the dissemination of important research and investigative reports.
