Performed by Sir Robert Pattinson Academy
Something happened on the school trip. One of the class has been replaced by an exact replica of themselves. At least that’s what everyone’s saying.
Once a rumour starts, it can be difficult to remember what is real – or who. Convinced that there is an impostor walking among them, a group of teenagers is determined to root out the intruder.
A mystery about friendship, the nature of truth, and humanity. When it comes to it, how do you prove that you are a human?
