In November 2015, Islamist rebels kidnapped 15 Western tourists from a resort near Mombasa, Kenya. Reports about the Mombasa hostages, who disappeared without trace, were overshadowed by news of the Paris attacks at the same time. In this new play by Mpumelelo Paul Grootboom, one of the most interesting theatremakers in Africa, the hostages' struggle for survival inspires a gripping and powerful story about human conflict across and beyond borders. "Grootboom finds images that depict the whole spectrum of life ... a powerful theatrical evening" -Luxemburger Wort "A strong, sweeping performance" -D'Letzebuerger Land
