Us/Them

About Us/Them

In September 2004, 1,200 schoolchildren, their parents and teachers were held hostage by a group of armed terrorists in the small Russian town of Beslan. It lasted three days and ended in utter chaos.

Us/Them retells this story through the eyes of two (fictional) children. But it is not a straightforward account of this terrible tragedy. It’s a theatre production about the entirely individual way children cope with extreme situations. With humour, a matter-of-fact approach and dynamic physical storytelling, Us/Them strikingly shows that for children, things that seem incomprehensible in adults’ eyes have their own logic.

Ages 10-15 years

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Us/Them are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
