Going Through

71 pages22 minutes


“It’s not always children’s stories that happen to children.”

When the men come to drive her away, Youmna cuts off Nour’s hair. And so begins one girl’s journey. By bus, by lorry, into the sound of gun-shots, through adolescence and across borders.

From Omar Elerian, director of the acclaimed West End hit MistyGoing Through is a bold and visually daring production about the realities of child migration. The production is equally accessible to hearing and deaf audiences and combines English, BSL and Creative Captioning.

Going Through is the UK premiere of Estelle Savasta‘s critically acclaimed French play Traversée and is translated by Kirsten Hazel Smith.
