The Sixth Pillar

Poster for The Sixth Pillarwritten and directed by Vikram Ramanarayanan

In February 2015, three teenage girls in Bethnal Green, London, disappeared without warning. They were next seen, on grainy security camera footage, boarding a Turkish Airlines flight to Istanbul and, later, a bus to the Syrian border. These images turned the girls into the face of a new, troubling phenomenon – young men and women travelling to the Middle East to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the Jihad against infidels.

The Sixth Pillar is a work of fiction set in San Francisco and Abu Dhabi that takes inspiration from these real-life stories. The play follows the teenagers’ journey in their quest to discover the promised land, as well as the harried parents’ frantic struggle to recover their children, as they each test how far they will go in the pursuit of their beliefs.

Naatak UpClose plays are staged in intimate settings that provide a unique theater experience.
