Synopsis

Gotcha by James Watson

When Miss Nevin's drama group is interrupted by the arrival of Mofaq, a young asylum-seeker with a traumatic past, their project to write a play about war acquires a new urgency. With the help of their secret internet wizard, Sparks, the students seek out virtual simulations of conflict that become all too real. Probing the borders between theatrical illusion and actuality, this play brings the horror of living under occupation into the classroom. The accompanying resource material provides practical staging advice and exciting activities for reading, writing and speaking and listening.
