TUNNEL VISION

A sketch show set on a tube carriage which cleverly tackled thorny issues such as the judgment of others. As the characters embark and depart from the carriage each scene presents a story with its own unique lesson. Rather than preaching to the audience however, Tunnel Vision encourages the audience to make up their mind and attempt to understand why the characters feel and react in the way they do. The play explores topics such as class, society, economic relations and love, but despite this strong non-religious humanitarian message, the stand-out scene is one in which Muslim-Jewish tensions are hilariously probed in the form of a chat show interview.

The show sold out twice at the Tricycle Theatre and since its premiere at the Tricycle Theatre opening night in June 2005 the MUJU Crew have been asked to perform extracts from the play at a range of Muslim and Jewish community events including Alif Aleph (House of Lords, 2005), South London Limmud (2006), City Circle (Bishopsgate Institute, 2008).

Given the show’s universal content and unique ability to engage minds and encourage independent thought, leading children’s charity One to One have created an Educational pack based on Tunnel Vision to be used in Schools for Religious Education / Citizenship classes.
