'A powerful chronicle of escape from Afghanistan.' ★★★★ Daily Telegraph
Herat, Afghanistan, 2000.
When a young mother speaks out against the Taliban, she and her husband are forced to flee their home and country with their three sons.
Embarking on a long and terrifying journey across Russia and through Europe, they seek final refuge in the UK.
But, as their eldest son’s life-threatening heart condition worsens and requires urgent surgery, their escape soon becomes a race against time.
Amit Sharma directs this widely acclaimed stage version of The Boy with Two Hearts (BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week). Based on extraordinary real-life experiences, it is a powerful story of hope, courage, and humanity – and a heartfelt tribute to the NHS.
'Deserves as wide an audience as possible, from schoolchildren to politicians.'
