Abstract

written by Nicola McCartney with Dritan Kastrati, this play evolved from Nicola's Impact work. It tells Dritan's tue story of being smuggled out of Kosova with a mafia gang as an asylum seeker at the end of the Kosovan war. Only 11 years old he made the perilous joueney across the Adriatic through Europe to the UK and survived. And then he ended up in another survival story, trying to hold on to his identity on his jouney through the British Foster Care system. This is an actyion-packed piece of physical theatre. Directed by Neil Bettles and co-producedby Thick Skin, Traverse Theatre and Tron Theatre. A tour is planned for 2020.
