Students of Citizenship class at Wotton Bassett school have been locked in and 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, they begin to see things differently, asking questions about conflicts, their country, and themselves. 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 premiered in March 2011 at the Soho Theatre as part of the National Theatre Connections Festival.
