Young Syrian Boy with flatbreads piled on his head

A Farnham Maltings production

With almost 5% of the world’s population on the move, desperate to get away from trouble, this is a story of those who have decided to go home despite the state of their country. This show is a human story about coming home, knowing where you belong and how small actions can make a big difference in one’s life and in re-building a community. It is a piece about humanity, hope and courage.

Told with affection, irrepressible humour and bread - because without bread nothing else will happen - this is about how we all have so much more in common than we realise.

From the company that brought you Brilliance and The Iranian Feast, Farnham Maltings has created a play about the world for village halls.

Written by Kevin Dyer and Directed by Gavin Stride.

Awarded ‘Play of the Year’ at the Writers' Guild of Great Britain Awards.
