The Glass Will Shatter – live Q&A on Zoom

April 22, 2020

Althea Theatre – an award nominated international ensemble made of British and non-British actors and theatre makers based in London have a new show, The Glass Will Shatter, which was scheduled to play at the Theatre Deli in Sheffield on April 22nd. Unfortunately, due to the global COVID-19 crisis they have had to cancel the live performance but have moved the show online! When audience members purchase a ticket for the show they will have access to the recorded performance of the play at any time on the 22nd April. They will also be invited to a live Q&A with the creatives behind the show hosted on Zoom at 8.30pm. You can buy tickets for the show here.
Thrilling and powerful, the world premiere of The Glass Will Shatter interrogates faith, belonging and polarisation within the school system – and the consequences of the counter-terrorism Prevent Policy on the quality of education in the UK today. Featuring British Somali actors, the performance takes a deep look into how the UK’s government policies and educational systems can have an impact on its ethnic and religious minority communities.
“We would love to reach out to audiences who have an interest in this area, particularly those who are from the communities affected by the issues explored in this play. We feel that the issues discussed in the play directly and disproportionately affect children and families from refugee and migrant backgrounds, and would love to welcome your communities to our online performance.”
About the Show:
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.
