Nine Lives 


More relevant today than ever before, make sure you book now for this remarkable, funny and moving play as Zodwa Nyoni (West Yorkshire Playhouse/ Channel 4 Writer in Residence 2014) threads together humour and humanity to tell the personal story behind the asylum headlines.

Post Show talk


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,

he waits to hear his fate and for a new life to begin amongst strangers. But not everyone is bad... can he find a place to call home again?

Some of us wanted to stop being afraid. Some of us wanted to find ourselves. Some of us wanted to belong.


‘the wit of the writing and lightness of the playing style gives the play its depth’
The Herald

“a cracking piece of theatre that offers a glimpse into an issue that’s present in the country and around the world today.”Adam Bruce, A Younger Theatre
