They call it a civil war, but there is nothing civil in this. Nothing civil at all. They came from Damascus, from Halab, from Banias where the bombs fall day and night and the wounded children look like sleeping angels. Now they live in camps and abandoned buildings in Lebanon or Jordan. Now Syria is just a distant memory, a home forever lost. This urgent and extraordinary show explores the crisis in Syria through the stories of its 2 million refugees. German-Syrian actor Corinne Jaber was last in London with her production of The Comedy of Errors for Shakespeare's Globe's World Shakespeare Festival. She is a former member of the RSC, performed in Peter Brook's Mahabharata and has won France's prestigious Moliere Prize.

Conceived by Corinne Jaber
