Southwark Playhouse Young Company presents


by Titas Halder
12 - 13 APR 2024

Ticket Prices:

Something happened on the school trip. One of the class has been replaced by an exact replica of themselves. At least that’s what everyone’s saying. Once a rumour starts, it can be difficult to remember what is real – or who. Convinced that there is an impostor walking among them, a group of teenagers is determined to root out the intruder. A mystery about friendship, the nature of truth, and humanity. When it comes to it, how do you prove that you are a human?

Titas Halder is a writer, director, and musician. His first two plays Run The Beast Down (Marlowe Theatre, Finborough) and Escape The Scaffold (The Other Room, Theatre 503) saw him nominated for Best New Writer at the Stage Debut Awards. His play The Basement was a finalist for the Verity Bargate Award. He trained on the Royal Court Theatre Young Writers Programme and at the Donmar Warehouse as Resident Assistant Director.

Connections is the National Theatre’s annual, nationwide youth theatre festival. Every year, Connections commissions new plays for young people to perform. The programme brings together some of the UK’s most exciting writers with the theatre-makers of tomorrow. In 2024, Southwark Playhouse is hosting 7 of the performances during the week of the 24th – 27th April. Find more information and tickets here.
