Sisters Freehold, a nonprofit social enterprise to train emerging artists—founded by Notre Dame of Maryland University graduates in 2021—presents a play exploring the individual way children cope with traumatic situations. In the wake of the tragic school shooting in Uvalde, Texas and the global trauma of the Russia-Ukraine war, the show offers the opportunity to reflect. It covers a historic tragedy that occurred on Sept. 1-3, 2004, in which terrorists took parents, children and teachers hostage in Beslan, Russia, leaving 333 dead—186 of them children.

Us/Them is a play about the three-day attack in the eyes of two young children: Girl and Boy. Hosted at Graffiti Warehouse in Baltimore, the 60-minute play runs at two separate times: 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. A suggested donation of $25 will support Save the Children’s Children’s Emergency Fund. Reserve tickets at
