Footprints Festival, Solo

On Arriving

BY IVAN FAUTE.
DIRECTED BY CAT ROBEY.
13 July -
22 July 2021

Overview

“He can see the horizon, beyond today.”

Summer sun, clear sky. Mother sends you to the market in your plastic slippers on a mission for cucumbers, and you return with a fiancé. Before you blink: a new home, a new baby, a new life planned. Neighbours mention troubling protests, but those are a far-off news story - until the moment it explodes onto your doorstep. When your world falls apart, it’s left to you to make a decision. It’s time to leave.

Ivan Faute’s plays have been produced in London, Houston and Chicago. Sophia Eleni, who starred in 15 Heroines, draws on her family’s refugee experience in this award-winning performance. Cat Robey is outgoing Carne Deputy Director of Jermyn Street Theatre. In partnership with charity Refugee Action.
