A work-in-progress by Nuzhat Ali
Directed by Janys Chambers

“Is this all there is to life? Trying not be killed?”

“No. We have to go.”

“Go? Go where?”

Flight is an enthralling new play by Nuzhat Ali about a man and his daughter who, with everything to lose, make a desperate and dangerous flight from Syria to Europe. Peopled by human-traffickers and ISIS guerrilla fighters, full of danger and treachery, hope and love, this exciting story will be performed for the first time in the open air on the roof-tops of Bolton.
