Unsafe and Unwelcome: The Impossible Life of a Refugee

In A Man of Good Hope, the Olivier Award-winning Isango Ensemble takes up Jonny Steinberg’s riveting book by the same name. Following a young Somali refugee who flees his country’s civil war only to find himself in a new violent reality in South Africa, the production offers clear-eyed portrait of resilience amid the challenges of displacement. Here, illustrator Nathan Gelgud explores Asad Abdullahi's journey across Africa and beyond.







Isango Ensemble / Young Vic’s production of A Man of Good Hope, by Jonny Steinberg, directed by Mark Dornford-May, is at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House through Sunday, February 19.
