Description - Noughts & Crosses by Malorie Blackman
This thrilling story has been dramatised for the Royal Shakespeare Company by the accomplished writer/director Dominic Cooke. Sephy is a Cross - a member of the dark-skinned ruling class. Callum is a Nought - a 'colourless' member of the underclass who were once slaves to the Crosses. The two have been friends since early childhood. But that's as far as it can go. Until the first steps are taken towards more social equality and a limited number of Noughts are allowed into Crosses schools...
