Description

Six lives uprooted by war. Displaced to Europe while desperately trying to protect a sense of family. Based on true stories and verbatim accounts, this play uses poetic structures and physical theatre to explore the emotional experience of becoming a refugee. An elderly couple travelling to find their son, newlyweds starting a life together and siblings who only have each other. Their lives collide on a smuggler’s vessel to Greece. How do you rebuild your life when it feels like you've lost everything?

This piece made me cry. It’s important to see the stories of refugees and why they chose to leave. The writing and acting are both spectacular. Go see it!

The only negative thing I have to say is that one of the actresses has a very weak voice. It’s a small space but there were many times when I didn’t hear her lines at all.

Brilliant piece of theatre - very moving. An emotional portrayal of tragic situations. Don't miss it.

An amazing start of the day! Sincere acting, touching true stories, gentle physical parts. This show does not laugh around, it goes in the depth. Thank you for the human connection!
