This is a story that is true for us, you, thousands of others across the world moving across the globe and thousands of others waiting to receive them. It is a story. It's not necessarily ours. It is not necessarily yours. But it is true.
Melding lived experience with creative theatre-making, refugees Mo and Hossein share stories - both personal and global - that explore the very different journeys taken by unaccompanied minors as they leave their home countries in search of sanctuary.
Honest, reflective, challenging and funny, the young performers - both long-standing participants in Leeds Playhouse's Theatre of Sanctuary programme - combine moments of dream-like wonder with unflinching fact sharing, drawing the audience into a direct dialogue and asking them to consider what life is really like for children fleeing danger and seeking a new home in the UK.
This edition was published to coincide with the world premiere at Leeds Playhouse in September 2021.
