Why did we come here? To the UK?

Bashir and Baba live in a council house in London.
Baba, once a doctor in Egypt, works in Tesco.
Bashir plays basketball with his friends and wonders what his home country was like.
What has happened since the Arab Spring?

Give Me the Sun is a beautiful and compelling new play, exploring what happens when too much is left unsaid for too long. A seemingly perfect father-son relationship unravels to reveal grief, loss and loneliness.

Written by Mamet Leigh, a pioneer of the Tehran Underground Theatre Movement, Give Me the Sun addresses the complexity of finding your place in a new country and how different that can be for each person.

Adapted with kind permission from the Bodleian Library's 1942 publication of the same name, Instructions for American Servicemen in Britain had a fully booked work in progress performance at the Blue Elephant before going on to tour nationally and internationally with sell-out runs in London and New York.

Fol Espoir have chosen to share this live performance to mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. It can be seen here.

Fol Espoir has asked those who enjoy the video to please consider donating to Hospice UK's Covid-19 Crisis Appeal – helping to provide desperately needed support for patients, families and frontline hospice staff during this difficult time.

Live performance filmed by Chloe Plumb at the Clapham Omnibus, London.
