Gritty City Repertory Youth Theatre presents FUGEE by Abi Morgan
Directed by Lindsay Krumbein

When 14-year-old Kojo arrives in London from the Cote d'Ivoire with no papers, no family, and no words in English, he is housed in a refuge for under-age asylum seekers. The system breaks down. Kojo finds himself tangled in a web of memories and nightmares, and must struggle for identity in a world where he is alone. As the United Nations reports that more unaccompanied children sought asylum last year than ever before in history, playwright Abi Morgan's controversial work is more relevant than ever. Appropriate for ages 10 and up; show runs approximately two hours

CIVILIAN presents a quantum stride forward in the field of edu-tainment by combining fine art techniques with the principles of citizens’ journalism to create an informative TED-style presentation on creative cultural development, spliced with dynamic poetry performances.

At the cutting edge of the emerging Artivist movement, this unique project engages audiences with visceral aesthetics while addressing critical issues of classism, race, women’s rights, juvenile justice and living in a wartime era. CIVILIAN seeks to inform, uplift and inspire audiences to proactively engage social justice efforts, while celebrating the vibrant diversity of our culture.
