About this show

For as long as she can remember, Nour has lived with Youmna. Youmna is beautiful and gentle and good, and she smells like the wind. She's also deaf. But Youmna is not Nour's mother, even though she wishes she was. Youmna's journey begins without warning. The men come to drive Nour to a new life faraway, in a better place for girls like her. All she can take with her is a little box and the memory of Youmna's loving hands. Going Through is a poetic and touching story of one girl's journey through adolescence, across borders and through a well-guarded secret.

UK Premiere. This bilingual production seamlessly mixes English and British Sign Language.
