Why did we come here? To the UK?
Bashir and Baba live in a council house in London.
Baba, once a doctor in Egypt, works in Tesco.
Bashir plays basketball with his friends and wonders what his home country was like.
What has happened since the Arab Spring?
Give Me the Sun is a beautiful and compelling new play, exploring what happens when too much is left unsaid for too long. A seemingly perfect father-son relationship unravels to reveal grief, loss and loneliness.
Written by Mamet Leigh, a pioneer of the Tehran Underground Theatre Movement, Give Me the Sun addresses how complex it can be to find your own place in a new country.
