Hey, I'm writing a play about identity and radicalization, but I can't find the appropriate metaphor for it. I don't want to attack it head on and have it literally be terrorism though, I want to focus more on the themes of being persecuted for identity, resorting to a subversive for acceptance and to let out anger, etc. I'm stuck. I don't necessarily want to do a Crucible-esque historical fiction to represent it. Ideas?
