About Don't Look Away

'This is like throwing a punch at a tidal wave. It’s not going to make it stop or slow down. It’s just going to engulf you, and me. Until there’s nothing left.'

  1. A young Syrian man enters a community centre, covered in flour and looking for help. He finds Cath, a cleaner, who reluctantly lets him stay in her son’s room. A split second decision which will change her life forever.

Don’t Look Away is a powerful new production from NOVAE theatre, sister company to internationally renowned ensemble Idle Motion. Directed by Nicholas Pitt (Mistero Buffo, Underbelly and Arcola Theatre, Winner of the Stage Award for Acting Excellence) and written by Grace Chapman (It’s Not A Sprint, Pleasance Edinburgh) this is daring theatre inventive in it’s form and astonishing in it’s delivery. A critical tale of compassion and an investigation into our collective response to the international refugee crisis.

Don’t Look Away will preview at Cornerstone and Harrogate Theatre, before transferring to Pleasance Islington. Made with support from Cornerstone, Harrogate Theatre, The Civic, Birmingham Hippodrome and Pleasance Theatre.
