Description
"A phenomenal piece of theatre... fascinating and thought-provoking drama." --British Theatre Guide


In September 2004 a group of terrorists stormed a school in Beslan taking hundreds of children hostage. The ensuing siege lasted three days and left many dead. Us/Them is not a straightforward account of this terrible tragedy, but an exploration of the entirely individual way children cope with traumatic situations.


'Wijs has produced something uniquely accessible and unpatronising for all ages. The play is specifically aimed at families, and by dealing with terror using such a lightness of touch the play opens a necessary path to discuss the horrors that will inevitably be encountered by children, be it on TV, in newspapers or on the internet, without resorting to the prejudices of adulthood.' The Upcoming.


After a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016 and winning The Scotsman Fringe First Award, Us/Them had its London premiere at the National Theatre in 2017.
