GW Theatre group tackles extremism through performances at schools
Helen CarterAn independent theatre company is tackling extremism in a town, which has been targeted by the far-right, by reaching out to teenagers across the community.
The GW Theatre group, based in Mossley, Greater Manchester, recently performed at alHikmah school Luton. Their play, One Extreme to the Other, examines the issues caused by extremism through the eyes of two characters – one white, one Muslim – who get caught up with extremist activities.
In February 2011, a protest by the English Defence League (EDL) caused large-scale disruption and loss of trade for businesses in the Bedfordshire town and was widely condemned.
