Written by Dawn Harrison with Phosphoros Theatre

"We’re going to tell you our stories how we want to.
You’re not here to judge if we’re credible or not.
I am not here to make your conscience feel better.
I don’t need you to feel sorry for me."

Shortlisted for the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award 2016, this unique emerging company stars four refugee young men who made the arduous journey to the UK on their own as children from Afghanistan, Eritrea and Albania.

They have told their ‘stories’ repeatedly to the Home Office as part of seeking asylum and it is their desire to reclaim them that grounds Phosphoros Theatre’s innovative work. From the backdrop of a pizza shop we embark on a journey across time and continents to explore how they got here, where they’re going and what they’ve learnt along the way.

It’s a story of male and cultural identity, of family and fatherhood, a lyrical collage of memories, hopes, dreams and imagined realities. From prisons in Libya and Greece to conversations with absent Mothers to raising the next generation of sons. Powerful, celebratory, affirming, authentic; this is theatre that puts refugees centre stage.

★★★★★
‘An illuminating and innovative presentation of the asylum seekers’ journey. It will change your perception. It will make you understand more. It is a play that should be seen by all.’
North West End

‘A declaration of strength, willpower and whole-hearted embrace of life, engineered by people who have climbed mammoth obstacles to perform it. It’s inspiring, humbling and deeply moving’.
Plinth Arts magazine

Suitable for ages 12+

'To whom should I complain?'

When a young novice nun is compromised by a corrupt official, who offers to save her brother from execution in return for sex, she has no idea where to turn for help. When she threatens to expose him, he tells her that no one would believe her. Shakespeare wrote this play in the early 1600s, yet  it remains astonishingly resonant today.

Running time: 170 minute
