Follow Doaa, who dreams of a better life amongst a backdrop of war, terror and enduring love. The boy from the local garden centre, whose tranquil existence amongst the flowers is torn apart. And a mother who cannot keep her children safe.

This immersive play envelopes you into these families in crisis as they seek refuge. Evros: The Crossing River explodes with Seemia’s unique blend of storytelling, world music and physical theatre.
