On the 4th July Saltmine Theatre Company delivered a production and Q&A session that explored the process and effects of radicalisation and of extremism, both far right wing extremism and al Qaida narrative inspired extremism.
The narrative was:
Michael and James are friends with very different lives but that doesn’t seem to matter until they both start listening to some people with very extreme views. As the boys begin to be radicalised, the tension between them builds and they grow further apart. Will they act on these views and what effect will this have on them and their families?
Students from all Year Groups attended the hard hitting and informative sessions. Students thoroughly enjoyed them sessions and had some brilliant questions.
