This one-act play, opens a small window into the lives of a Muslim family and their friends in modern Britain, during the most challenging 48 hours they are ever likely to experience. 16 year-old Shamilla is missing and her older brother’s whereabouts alert the authorities to a previously unremarkable family.
Opening debate on the radicalisation of our young citizens, the play asks why and provides an opportunity for discussion on all sides: young, old, teenager, teacher, parents and police, drawing some uncomfortable links between casual racism, austerity, immigration and a growing desire in some to head to the Middle East.
"My Brothers & Sisters, use(s) the power of theatre to prevent radicalisation. It is genuinely thought provoking and the audience is a near interactive prescience.”
Times Educational 2016.
96% of students surveyed said they enjoyed the production and 87% said they knew more about radicalisation after the performance and related tutorial activities.
