Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak

From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).

Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.

However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.

The show below will not currently be playing and is scheduled to close by 15 August 2020 (when theatres can reopen for indoor performances).

Original performance dates are given below and reflect any changes we know about.

Show details


Young Afghan refugee Saeed desperately wants to reconnect with his roots and find his long-lost sister.

He leaves his family in London and returns to Kabul where he is soon caught up in the paranoia, suspicion and violence of contemporary Afghanistan and must face up to the realities of his changed world.

This moving and thought-provoking play deals with a major issue from an unusual perspective, reversing the usual refugee story clichés to let us share the hopes, fears and aspirations of a refugee as he searches for a place that feels like home.

It asks where and what is 'home'?

Is it just the place where you live now or is it the place you came from?

o be called 'home' must a place have a connection to family and roots?
