Immersive play in east London school to explore motives of radicalised youth
A theatre company has begun work on a production that aims to delve into the motives of radicalised teenagers like the three east London schoolgirls believed to have travelled to Syria in February.
A cast of 113 young actors will take over a school in Bethnal Green – less than a mile from the academy attended by Shamima Begum, Kadiza Sultana and Amira Abase – for two weeks in August.
The immersive play, titled Homegrown, is being created by by director Nadia Latif and playwright Omar El-Khairy, and will be developed with their cast, exploring how young people become radicalised and misconceptions about Muslims in the UK.
