Echo Theatre presents Us/Them
In 2004, armed Chechen rebels stormed a school in Beslan, Russia, taking hundreds hostage. The ensuing siege lasted three days and left many dead, including children. Us/Them is a haunting, sometimes playful, always captivating account of the siege as told by two of the hostage students. It offers a child's view of how to cope with trauma and why people commit unthinkable acts.
Adults and students 13+ are encouraged to attend. Each performance will offer a post-show discussion, led by a facilitator trained in Trauma and PTSD Counseling.
