Black Theatre Live



'An honest and often riveting account of a young Anglo-Iraqi woman's attempt at piercing the veil of misunderstanding that exists between her two countries.' Haaretz

'The resulting play weaves love stories, jokes, humour and childish innocence into the more familiar images of violence, fear and death that fill news bulletins from Iraq today.' Reuters

STYLIST magazine featured stories taken from Return in their March 2013 issue on Iraq. BBC Arabia made a 20 minute feature about Return for their cultural programme Afac.

'Return immersed me into a world and story that has not yet been explored in mainstream theatre. By combining narrative and form so fluidly, 3Fates highlight what a visceral and immediate medium theatre can be - especially when exploring such culturally and politically sensitive material.' Harry Mackrill, Tricycle Theatre (National Theatre Studio sharing)

'A play of such honest power....the raw autobiographical story, the inventive staging, the brilliant performances ... an intimate work which expresses the challenges of a borderland generation searching for identity in a time of great turmoil and transformation.' Stephen Stapleton, Director Edge of Arabia
