Far East Theatre Company’s upcoming production of Bassett is one not to miss.
Originally commissioned in 2011 as part of the National Theatre's Connection Festival, James Graham’s Bassett is a pacy, funny and urgent play that shows the struggles of young people who have inherited a world at war: a world that they will do anything to try and make sense of.
Bassett is now considered one of the best plays for young people in the last 25 years of the National Theatre’s Connections programme.
Locked in at lunchtime by a teacher who has had enough, the students of Citizenship class at Wootton Bassett school are frustrated. Tensions run high as another repatriation of fallen British soldiers is happening along the high street and this one’s more personal than most.
As their confinement grows more claustrophobic, the pupils begin to see things differently, asking questions about conflicts, their country, and themselves.
