Based on the original production made by Theatr Clwyd
Written by Tim Baker and Directed by John Young
This is the story of when two worlds collide, as two teenage boys, Owen and Yasser, meet at an abandoned allotment during the summer. By digging beneath the surface and unearthing each other’s stories, they explore the challenging questions we ask ourselves and struggle to answer. Through sharing their pasts the two boys form a friendship which ultimately helps them comprehend and come to terms with their uncertain futures.
This original piece of theatre doesn’t attempt to answer the big questions about who we are and where we belong, but instead provokes conversations and debate. It aims to confront stereotypes surrounding asylum seekers and refugees through Owen’s curiosity and Yasser’s experiences. It explores the ethos that we are defined as humans by the story and history we carry with us, the one thing no one can take away.
After a successful Schools Tour in Wales in 2016 and performances at The Good Chance Theatre in the ‘Jungle’ refugee camp in Calais, don’t miss this production at the West Yorkshire Playhouse. The production is recommended for audiences aged 9+’
