When the men come to drive her away, Youmna cuts off Nour’s hair. And so begins one girl’s journey. By bus, by lorry, into the sound of gun-shots, through adolescence and across borders. All she can take with her is a little box and her memories of Youmna, the woman who raised her.
Going Through is a bold and visually thrilling production about the journeys child migrants take and the loved ones they leave behind. From Omar Elerian, director of acclaimed West End hit Misty, this production is for deaf and hearing audiences and combines English, BSL and Creative Captioning.
Going Through is the UK premiere of Estelle Savasta‘s critically acclaimed French play Traversée and is translated by Kirsten Hazel Smith.
