• Elegy

A theatre monologue
Created and devised with director Douglas Rintoul for Transport Theatre/a summerday, Edinburgh Festival, 2011

‘Some stories are more powerful than others.’

A young man pieces together a personal story; his is a flight from tragedy through a no-man’s land of empty train stations, border crossings and bomb-blasted towns. Based on interviews with gay Iraqi refugees, Elegy is a moving and impassioned cri de coeur exposing the horrific realities of life in post-liberation Iraq and the injustice of the UK asylum process.
