Extremism by Anders Lustgarten directed by Suzann McLean at Theatre Peckham
Auditions to find 11 actors aged 17-22 for a 3-week run of this critically acclaimed play.
Priority given to actors who live in South London.

Each actor will be given a Bursary to cover their costs during the entire project.

Extremism is a highly-charged political play that looks into the of radicalisation of young people. The entire play takes place in a classroom and begins after one of the pupils has been taken away by the governmental organisation, Prevent, because the teacher believes them to have been demonstrating signs of radicalisation. The rest of the class are left alone, shell-shocked and the classroom soon becomes a melting pot for explosive opinions and actions. As they try to come to terms with what’s happened, surprise turns to suspicion, suspicion turns to fear, fear turns to accusation, and accusation turns to violence.

Theatre Peckham are producing this play in the heart of Southwark to encourage young people to make responsible, intelligent, life choices and to form positive attitudes about their future.

All cast members will up-skill as actors and also be trained as peer facilitators and mentors to build skills and a creative toolkit for peer to peer exploration of youth crime, identity and mental health.
