Watch Refugee Boy in Newcastle

Watch Refugee Boy in Newcastle

From March 18th to 22nd, the Northern Stage theatre in Newcastle will be putting on a production of Refugee Boy, a story of love, loss and hope.

The play follows the life of Alem, a fourteen year old boy, who is on holiday in London with his father. Overnight the unthinkable happens - a violent war breaks out in his home country of Ethiopia and he awakes to find himself a stranger in an unfamiliar country.

Alem’s Ethiopian father and Eritrean mother decide to leave him in London to keep him safe while they return to the country. The story follows Alem - now a refugee - from court hearings to children’s homes and foster families. Through all this Alem remains strong and is determined to return to his country as an African peacemaker.

Written by poets Benjamin Zephaniah and Lemn Sissay and directed by Gail McIntyre, the play is both hilariously funny and heartbreaking. Tickets cost from £24 to £14.50.

Make the most of your visit by staying at a Newcastle hotel and making a short break out of it.
