Nine Lives Written by Zodwa Nyoni, Performed by Lladel Bryant, Directed by Alex Chisholm (touring in autumn 2015-winter 2016)

Presented by Leeds Studio in association with West Yorkshire Playhouse

Fleeing from his home in Zimbabwe where a fresh wave of homophobia threatens his life, Ishmael has sought sanctuary in the UK. Dispersed to Leeds, Ishmael waits to hear his fate, he waits for a new life to begin amongst strangers. Strangers who don't trust him and don't want him there. But not everyone is bad... can he find a place to call home again? more...

Some of us wanted to stop being afraid.
Some of us wanted to find ourselves.
Some of us wanted to belong.

Zodwa Nyoni (West Yorkshire Playhouse/Channel 4 Writer in Residence 2014) threads together humour and humanity to tell the real personal story behind asylum headlines.

"The wit of the writing and lightness of the playing style gives the play its depth" The Herald.

"Nine Lives sheds some light on the reality of being an asylum seeker in modern Britain. Turns out it isn't huge flat screen TVs and cooking the Queen's swans. Who knew? " Nick Ahad, The Yorkshire Post

"A cracking piece of theatre that offers a glimpse into an issue that's present in the country and around the world today." Adam Bruce, A Younger Theatre
