Featured in No Direction Home: a festival exploring displacement, migration and refuge.

Overview

Four young men working your average shift in your average pizza shop take us on a journey across time and continents to show how extraordinary they are. From leaving their homelands of Eritrea, Albania and Afghanistan to seek asylum as children, they 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 migration stories shaped by Europe’s colonial past, of family and fatherhood. Using the company’s trademark warmth and wit, these lived experience actors share a stage with a former refugee caseworker to perform 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 refugee theatre that subverts notions of victimhood.
