Until Sunday 12th Nov 2017
When Khady’s husband dies, she is forced to sell his goats. Sending her eldest son away from Senegal across desert and sea to Europe, in the hope that he will find a better life, she plunges her entire family into uncertainty.
When Gisela’s life in England is turned upside down, she goes home to Bavaria seeking comfort and familiarity. But her attempts to assist the steady flow of refugees arriving in her childhood village soon awaken memories from her own past.
Erika reveals the truth about the journey made on foot with her baby daughter after being expelled from Sudetenland in 1945.
The bold choices made by these three mothers are brought together as one compelling narrative in this play.
“…A play so full of love and hope that it left me feeling better about the world.”
