National Youth Theatre: The Host

Returning after a sell-out run at the Yard Theatre in summer 2017, Nessah Muthy’s critically acclaimed urgent response to the Brexit vote and the European refugee crisis offers no easy answers.

Syrian refugee Rabea finds an unlikely host in fellow 20-year-old Yasmin in her South London flat. But on the same estate Yasmin’s family face struggles of their own and believe that charity should begin at home.

Zoe Lafferty directs bright young talent in this sparky and comic urban story exploring cultural identity and difference.

4 star rating

the National Youth Theatre is in exuberantly good form… powerful and passionate… Murrell is fearsomely good as the defensive Yas

4 star rating

The Host is a gripping and urgent piece of theatre, which resonates far beyond the mere 90 minutes it occupies.
