Come In! Sit Down!

Charlie Hebdo. Paris. Copenhagen. ISIS. Terror on the streets. Conflict in the Middle East. The media is flooded with headlines highlighting tensions between Muslim and Jewish communities.
 
Celebrating 10 years at the Tricycle Theatre, MUJU devised a brand-new production exploring the pressure many Muslims and Jews feel to distance themselves from international acts of violence, while at the same time feeling pressure to stay aligned with their faith and culture.
 
Exploring identity, faith, community and nationalism at a time of increased Islamophobia and anti-Semitism, the show cleverly uses recognisable characters, scenes, songs and comedy to uncover genuine truths and lived experiences.
