Written by Naylah Ahmed

A retired teacher takes an idealistic young Muslim man hostage and embarks on a dangerous game of hide and seek with the truth. Tormented by grief and haunted by a terrible secret, will she ever let him go? Regret and loss collide with fear and paranoia in a distorted reality fed by 24 hour global news, blogs and chat rooms. This powerful play for our times asks who is the real enemy at our gates?

The cast is led by prolific Wolverhampton-born stage and TV actress, Joan Blackham.
