Not in My Name

84 pages1 hour


‘You just get that panic – you just start panicking and you don’t know what to do. It didn’t feel real… Why here? Why me?’

Saturday afternoon. In town with your mates.

Doing some shopping. Or maybe watching the match.

When the bomb goes off.

Then there’s Horror. Fear. Anger. Blame.

And perhaps you’re thinking: ‘Not in my name’.

Not in My Name uses verbatim interviews to realistically portray the aftermath, community impact and personal consequences of a fictional terror attack from the perspective of over thirty young characters. Suitable for performance by young people or adults, this is a bold and challenging play that allows audiences to openly, safely and productively discuss current issues around terrorism and violent extremism.

The play includes a series of comprehensive Teachers’ Notes designed to aid school staff and other adults working with young people in relating its content to topics around Preventing Violent Extremism (PVE) within and beyond the citizenship curriculum.
