SYNOPSIS


A displaced mother and child struggle to hold darkness and despair at bay, during a punishing trek from their devastated, war ravaged homeland to a destination of perceived safety and security.


To research the play writer/director Steve Lambert visited The Lebanon and camps on the Syrian border to learn of the desperate measures people can be forced to endure as they strive to survive. In the UK he worked with refugee communities and support organisations to develop a drama that is true to their experiences of fleeing conflict and, sometimes, certain death.

The Journey tells of the emotional, psychological and physical effects experienced by those forced to flee their homes.

Since the company’s launch in 1999 ,Badac's work has always focused on human rights issues. Their unflinching work is brave, dark, all-consuming and stunning in every meaning of the word. Often moving and affecting, it provokes extreme reactions and polarises opinions.
