Nine Lives Tickets

Some of us wanted to stop being afraid.

Some of us wanted to find ourselves.

Some of us wanted to belong.


Fleeing from his home in Zimbabwe where a fresh wave of homophobia threatens his life, Ishmael has sought sanctuary in the UK. Dispersed to Leeds, Ishmael waits to hear his fate, he waits for a new life to begin amongst strangers. Strangers who don’t trust him and don’t want him there. But not everyone is bad… can he find a place to call home again?

Written by Zodwa Nyoni

Performed by Lladel Bryant

Directed by Alex Chisholm

Zodwa Nyoni (West Yorkshire Playhouse/Channel 4 Writer in Residence 2014) threads together humour and humanity to tell the real personal story behind asylum headlines.
