Nine Lives

22 October - 31 October 2020 Choose Dates & Book

Presented by Leeds Studio

Fleeing from his home where a fresh wave of homophobia threatens his life, Ishmael has sought sanctuary in the UK.  Dispersed to Leeds, Ishmael waits to hear his fate, he waits for a new life to begin amongst strangers.  But not everyone is bad… can he find a place to call home again?  Some of us wanted to stop being afraid. Some of us wanted to find ourselves. Some of us wanted to belong. 

Zodwa Nyoni threads together humour and humanity to tell the real personal story behind asylum headlines.
