A Sudden Violent Burst of Rain

Roundabout @ Summerhall - Roundabout


We all live under the same sky. It’s just that, beneath that sky, there’s some arsehole saying 'don’t stand here, stand there and shut your mouth'. Elif shears sheep for a rich landowner. Every waking hour she spends queuing outside the palace, hoping the King will let her live within the city walls. She comes from a far-away land, searching for sanctuary. This is what we call a hostile environment. A Sudden Violent Burst of Rain from award-winning playwright Sami Ibrahim is a poetic fable of an impenetrable immigration system that mirrors our own.
