There are thought to be over 3 million Chinese Uyghur Muslim's who have been forced into the so called 'Rehabilitation Camps' in China.Ex inmates tell of torture, rape and brainwashing, as the Chinese authorities try to steer the Uyghur people away from their culture and their religion. ‘Thought Virus’ is loosely based on the true story of a famous male Chinese Uyghur Model, who, after finding fame in Beijing, ends up in a Chinese Detention Centre. After being released, he is re-arrested and sent to a so-called Rehabilitation Camp. The play follows his journey and the people he encounters on that journey, the betrayal and loss he endures and the impact on his family, along with their every day struggles living as a minority in modern day Communist China.​

The play had an initial read through in June 2022 at the Arts Educational School in London, followed by a Spotlight read through with the above actors in October 2022 in Central London.
The World Premiere at The Drayton Arms Theatre in 
September 2023 sold out.
