Moving people: Short play on people forced from their homes

Moving people is a short play written by RISE Theatre. In the play we meet four people who have been forced from their homes. 

Use this CAFOD refugee drama activity with young people to help them reflect on the value and dignity of each person. The play creatively explores the Parable of the sheep and goats (Matthew 25:31-46).
