The dangers of underage drinking will be highlighted at seven schools in Windsor and Maidenhead this month.
Year nine pupils will be visited by the Solomon Theatre Company who will perform their alcohol awareness production Last Orders.
The thought-provoking play demonstrates the challenges encountered by some teenagers who find themselves dealing with pressure from friends, and their first experiences of alcohol.
Furze Platt Senior School, Desborough School and Altwood CE School in Maidenhead, Windsor Girls' School and Windsor Boys' School in Windsor, Charters School in Ascot and Churchmead Church of England (VA) School in Datchet, are all set for visits.
Cllr Eileen Quick, cabinet member for children's services, said: "It is important that young people are given information about how alcohol can change their behaviours and perceptions.
"I am glad that we are able do so in a non-threatening, non-blaming and thought-provoking environment."
