First seen as part of the NT Connections festival in 2017, Anders Lustgarten’s play looks at what happens when a student, a recent arrival at the school, is reported by a teacher for showing signs of radicalisation and taken away. Those left behind try to make sense of what has happened and soon fear and suspicion are ignited and the positions taken become increasingly polarised. Theatre Peckham’s artistic director, Suzann McLean, directs a cast of emerging actors in a play exploring friendship, racism and peer pressure.

About Extremism

The police just took Jamal away. Because Miss Tomlinson called them. Because she had to. Because of Prevent, and now all that’s left is a shell-shocked class. A play about fear, friendship and the creeping polarisation of our society. Join us in the classroom and pull up a seat.
