Imagine being held hostage at your school. This “astonishingly assured” (The Guardian) drama does just that, all through a child’s eyes. Us/Them comes to New Zealand following sell-out seasons at the Edinburgh Festival and London’s National Theatre. 

Based on the experiences of children who lived through the 2004 Beslan school hostage crisis, Us/Them presents this harrowing subject with a deft lightness of touch. The experience is naively wonderful, unsettlingly funny and deeply thought-provoking.
