“Innocent until proven guilty? Not here you're not”

Khalid likes football, hip hop, computer games and has a big crush on a girl – like any other teenage boy. Except being a young Muslim in the aftermath of 9/11 can be very dangerous. Snatched in the middle of the night he is thrown into a nightmare world in which he is presumed guilty. Alone, afraid and far from home, will he have the strength to survive? This powerful and immersive play takes the audience into the heart of the ‘war on terror'. Originally commissioned by Stratford Circus. Presented with the permission of Puffin Group.

“...A fast-moving piece that packs a great deal into its hour playing time...imaginatively mounted by director Dominic Hingorani and designer Rachana Jadhav, it is played with feeling.” (British Theatre Guide)
