About the event

Taking an unflinching look at the people behind the labels, this hard-hitting new play asks how responsible society is for creating the ‘monsters’ it fears. Three characters flee the shores of Libya; each on their own personal journey, whilst a tabloid reporter awaits them on the beaches of Greece, seeking stories to fit a cynical narrative about the Syrian refugee crisis. Of Our Own Making examines our judgement of perpetrators in light of complex circumstances.

Saif is a man escaping atrocities that he was forced to commit. Amira is travelling across the Mediterranean with her friend Hussan to find a better life for her baby. Parsifal is a lost and lonely boy, neglected in real life and vulnerable online to those who would groom and exploit him. As Parsifal becomes more radicalised, Saif starts to reclaim himself, and Micky, an undercover tabloid reporter, finds the scoop she’s looking for to be more affecting than she’d anticipated.

Against the background of the Chilcot enquiry, the questions around the Iraq war, and the demonisation of immigrants, the meetings of these characters are shaped by the circumstances that have altered them.
