"He can see the horizon, beyond today."
Written by IVAN FAUTE
Directed by CAT ROBEY
Performed by SOPHIA ELENI
Summer sun, clear sky. Mother sends you to the market in your plastic slippers on a mission for cucumbers, and you return with a fianc√©. Before you blink: a new home, a new baby, a new life planned. Neighbours mention troubling protests, but those are a far-off news story - until the moment it explodes onto your doorstep. When your world falls apart, it‚Äôs left to you to make a decision. It‚Äôs time to leave.
Ivan Faute‚Äôs plays have been produced in London, Houston and Chicago. Sophia Eleni, who starred in 15 Heroines, draws on her family‚Äôs refugee experience in this award-winning performance. Cat Robey is outgoing Carne Deputy Director of Jermyn Street Theatre. In partnership with charity Refugee Action.
