This autobiographical play is about Roo, a Deaf Punjabi boy from Birmingham, in a world that was not made for him, he explores the impact of ableism and racism throughout his childhood, and how that has seeped into his adult life, leading him to confront one key question:
"Where do I belong?"
A coming-of-age story about discovering your community and the journey that follows. Come and be immersed in Roo’s world as he navigates across borders and grapples with his sense of identity.
The performance will be in BSL, Spoken English and Closed Captions.
