Asylum claims based on sexual orientation and gender identity have been recognised in the UK since 1999. However, actually gaining asylum on this basis has proved to be far from straight forward. Based on real-life testimonies Kimalia pitches Ade, a Kimali refugee, against Vincent, the border guard with a prejudice. Written specifically for a cast of graduating students, this urgent, contemporary tale exposes endemic prejudice at the heart of the Home Office’s immigration strategy and questions all of our attitudes to race, gender and nationality. This play contains explicit language and scenes that may shock and is unsuitable for audiences under 16.
