About This Show

The Journey tells the story of a mother and child fleeing their devastated, war ravaged homeland for a destination of perceived safety. To research the play writer and director Steve Lambert visited Lebanon and camps on the Syrian border to learn of the desperate measures people can be forced to endure as they strive to survive. In the UK he worked with refugee communities and support organisations as well as Edinburgh based poet Ghazi Hussain, a former Palestinian refugee who fled Syria to escape torture and imprisonment – and was twice repatriated before being given leave to stay in Britain. The cast includes actors who are themselves refugees and face an uncertain future in Britain.
