HIDDEN, the stage play, adapted from my Carnegie-nominated novel, is about two teens who pull an asylum seeker out of the sea and hide him to save him from being deported. Dealing with some of the most challenging issues of our times; immigration, refugees, asylum seekers, racism, HIDDEN asks the question, What would you do for a stranger?
The play is touring small theatres and schools on the south coast, Essex, Bedford and London. You can find out about booking here.
Breathtaking performance of HIDDEN. Thank you so much for coming in with this thought-provoking and inspiring piece.
