Refugee Boy

So I managed to see Refugee Boy at West Yorkshire Playhouse on Saturday.

And yet immigration is as natural to us as breathing. The first act of migration is from the womb into open air. The second act if migration is learning to walk, to grow wings and eventually fly the nest. The saying ‘the world is your oyster’ is a celebration of migration. Ink migrates from pen to paper, words migrate from the page to the stage.

It is beautiful and thought-provoking. Those in Leeds should definitely go see it.

I’m sat on a train currently. I like journeys.

Refugee Boy


I had the pleasure of meeting this man yesterday. He talked about the importance of travel, and migration as a natural process for any human being. He also advocated that we are all extraordinary, and we must all be the best that we can be. I am excited to see his adaptation of Benjamin Zephaniah’s Refugee Boy at WYPlayhouse this coming week.

In other news, I had a lovely morning wandering round town yesterday.
