Divided City Resources
Theresa Breslin's novel Divided City explores religious tension in Scotland through a gripping tale about two Glaswegian boys, one Celtic fan, one Rangers fan, who must find their own answers in a divided world.
First performed in 2011 at the Citizens Theatre, over 7,500 people, including 5,000 young people, have experienced this inspiring piece of theatre and its important message of tolerance and friendship so far.
On this page, you’ll find details of the previous iterations of this project, links to documentaries and interviews about the production and audio/visual resources to help teachers involved in the project to engage their classes*.
