In 2004, armed Chechen rebels stormed a school in Beslan, Russia, taking over 1,100 people hostage. It ended three days later with 700 people injured and 334 people dead; 186 of them children.

How do we begin to discuss the atrocity of Terrorism? How does it affect us? How does it affect our kids?

Us/Them is a haunting, surprising, always captivating account of the siege as told by two hostage students. It offers a child's understanding of coping with trauma and why people commit unthinkable acts.

Mature Themes. Appropriate for ages 13 to Adult.

Each performance will offer a post-show discussion, led by a licensed trauma counselor from Centene Corporation.
