production information

1939. 143 million people in Italy and Germany live under fascism, controlled by dictators. Their leaders are Benito Mussolini and Adolf Hitler.

1963. Milgram’s psychological experiment finds that 65% of participants will follow an authority’s order and administer a lethal electric shock to an innocent stranger.

2019. 17 pupils in a London comprehensive participate in a project on collective identity. What lies around the corner, no one predicts.

Written by Molly Taylor (Extinguished Things, Cacophony) and developed with the 14 –18 Almeida Young Company, The Wave asks what happens when everything you thought you knew and trusted about yourself is challenged.
