The Glass Will Shatter interrogates faith, belonging and polarisation within the school system.

Rebecca still has nightmares about Amina and the unnerving events that unfolded in her classroom. Or is it Amina that still has nightmares? Years later, one of them decides - it’s time to meet, again.

Through a series of gripping flashbacks to the school where Amina learned and Rebecca taught, an irreversible sequence of choices lead to an unexpected end, changing the course of both of their lives.

Thrilling and powerful, the world premiere of The Glass Will Shatter interrogates faith, belonging and polarisation within the school system - and the consequences of Prevent Policy on the quality of education in the UK today.

The performance includes creative captioning and will be followed by a post-show Q&A with Althea Theatre through a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Time: Apr 22, 2020 08:30 PM GMT (Meeting ID: 985 374 009)
