How Not to Drown

theatre
By Nicola McCartney and Dritan KastratiAward-winning theatre company ThickSkin return to the stage with an action packed, highly visual production telling the painful yet uplifting true story of an eleven year-old unaccompanied asylum-seeker.?I don?t know why my Dad let me go, especially when he knew how dangerous, how hard it was? I was too young, too weak to make this journey. I wouldn?t have sent me? He wouldn?t have sent me unless there was a reason.?In 2002, in the turmoil after the end of the Kosovan War, Dritan is sent on the notoriously perilous journey across the Adriatic with a gang of people smugglers to a new life in Europe. He relies on his young wit and charm to make it to the UK. But the fight for survival continues as he clings to his identity and sense of self when he ends up in the British care system. How Not to Drown shares a story of endurance for a little kid who wasn?t safe or welcome anywhere in the world, performed by an ensemble cast starring Dritan Kastrati himself.Wed 7 September 2022 My Voice Was Heard But It Was Ignored Tickets & Info Tue 14 March 2023 - Sat 18 March 2023 Noughts & Crosses Tickets & InfoWed 7 September 2022 My Voice Was Heard But It Was Ignored Tickets & InfoTickets & InfoTue 14 March 2023 - Sat 18 March 2023 Noughts & Crosses Tickets & InfoTickets & Info
