Stage play – In The Sea There Are Crocodiles: a child’s search for a safe place to live

August 31 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

- £10
“In The Sea There Are Crocodiles By Fabio Geda The unforgettable true story of a child’s five-year journey in search of a safe place to live.

At the age of ten, Enaiat Akbari’s Afghan village fell prey to the Taliban. Fearing for his life, Enaiat’s mother led him across the border where she left him, alone, to fend for himself. So began Enaiat’s five-year ordeal: traversing bitterly cold mountains, near-suffocating in the base of a truck, steering an inflatable raft in violent seas, he crossed Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, and Greece – discovering brotherhood, witnessing death, and developing an eye for comedy – before arriving in Italy, aged fifteen.

 

In the Sea There Are Crocodiles is one child’s epic tale of hope and survival. As unaccompanied children around the world continue daily to seek asylum, it is a tale that is re-lived by them, over and over.”
