This year’s Roundabout takes place in Prince’s Park Irlam not at The Lowry.

‘We all live under the same sky.
It’s just that, beneath that sky, there’s some arsehole saying “don’t stand here, stand over there and shut your mouth”.’ 

Elif shears sheep for a rich landowner. Every other waking hour she spends queuing outside the palace, hoping that the King will let her live within the city walls.  

She comes from a far-away land.
She is searching for sanctuary.
And this is what we call a hostile environment. 

A Sudden Violent Burst of Rain from award-winning playwright Sami Ibrahim is a poetic fable of an impenetrable immigration system that mirrors our own.
