This deeply moving and personal play, a world premiere from the young Turkish author Leyla Nazli, is set in the turbulent political climate of the 1980’s Turkey.
In a remote mountain village in Eastern Turkey, a father tries to hold onto everything he has created, but everything and everyone seems to stand against him. Set in a turbulent time in Turkish history and in an area of increasing political instability, this is the story of a father who will do anything to keep his family safe and secure.
