Once upon a time, in the middle of a school, in the middle of Detroit, in the middle of the United States of America, there was a confused teacher and a precocious student

When Dov - an orthodox Jew - and Ali - a strict Muslim - get caught in cultural crossfire, both are confronted with the same choice:

Will they stand by their beliefs or face the devastating consequences?


" ... beautifully wrought" ~ The Telegraph

"a flawless play In a time of ceaseless snark and cynicism, its earnestness in asking bigger questions can be downright refreshing" ~ The New York Times

"In an American tradition of plays such as Oleanna Anna Ziegler's four-hander is an intense, intelligent and hugely promising play that plays out clashes of belief systems in the classroom" ~ The Guardian

" ... a powerhouse play that drives its way through an hour and a half of twists and turns about race, individuality, human relations and role models There is a resounding truth that pours out of it in all directions and yet [it] doesn't preach. There are no answers offered, there are no morals proffered, but when theatre is this good, it reminds you how essential it is" ~

" ... an acutely observed exploration of the hypocrisies that engulf us today packs a powerful punch An incredibly moving play that challenges notions of freedom, expectations and ultimately forgiveness" ~ The British Theatre Guide
