About this show

Juliette is a survivor of the genocide in Rwanda, now trying to survive a hostile and unfamiliar life in London. She has written a book about the genocide and hopes Simon, a struggling poet and author can help her get it published. Through awkward language barriers and cultural gaps, they don't know quite what to do with their blossoming friendship or with Juliette's writing, until they unlock the poetry of her personal experience. Winner of the Time Out London Critic Choice Award™, this play reminds us of the incredible power of the written word and how from time to time, we need a nudge to see the horrific and the glorious in the world.
