This play tells the stories of five individuals seeking asylum in the UK: Zakariya from Darfur; Destin from the Republic of Congo; Jalal from Iraq; Parvaneh from Iran and Marie-Elena from Colombia. Each has been forced to flee their homeland in the face of death, each is haunted in a different way by the past. Finding themselves in situations that veer between the comic and the tragic, they try to make sense of the British way of life.
“Scars are like medals. They show we have taken part in the life.”
Inspired by the real life testimony of people who have sought refuge in the UK, ‘Crocodile Seeking Refuge’ is an incisive look at the asylum stories behind the headlines.
