Two children are in a boat. One is rowing. One is fishing. Their talk is light-hearted: of catching a fish, a fish so big it will capsize the boat; of whales who will pull the boat; of mermaids who sing haunting melodies; and of land. A land with thick grass, green leaves, endless blue skies. A beautiful land. A safe land. Above all… a safe land.
Adrift is a poignant and important play from acclaimed children’s theatre company Action Transport Theatre. Following the story of two children adrift at sea fleeing conflict, it is a celebration of the resilience and imagination of childhood.
