A painful yet uplifting true story of a child asylum-seeker arriving in the UK.
At eleven years old, Dritan is sent on the notoriously perilous journey across the Adriatic to a new life in Europe, only to continue his fight for survival in the British Care System.
“I don’t know why my Dad let me go… I was too young, too weak, to make this journey. He wouldn’t have sent me unless there was a reason.”
Award-winning theatre company, ThickSkin, returns to the stage with an action packed, highly visual production.
Note: Contains Strong language, strobe lighting, loud noises and scenes of violence.
