2015. Bradford. Adnan, a young asylum seeker, enters a community centre covered in flour & asking for help. He finds Cath, a middle-aged cleaner, who reluctantly lets him stay in her son’s empty bedroom. A split-second decision which will change her life forever.
Don’t Look Away shifts focus away from the government’s response to the international refugee crisis to our individual power to make a difference; a powerful, timely production exploring the impact of the UK’s ‘hostile environment’ on those who witness it.
"the mark of a terrific play – one that makes us question what we know of ourselves and the world around us." - BritishTheatre.com
