To mark the tenth anniversary of 9/11, high school students from Paris's rough northern suburbs of Seine-St. Denis are putting on a play about the attacks in the capital's Theatre de la Ville. Theatre company La Mauvaise Graine spent a year working with the students - who were only six or seven years old when the attacks happened - to build a performance that challenges stereotypes and brings out differences between the present and the past.
