They came from Damascus, from Halab, from Banias where the bombs fall day and night and the wounded children look like sleeping angels. Now they live in camps and abandoned buildings in Lebanon or Jordan. Now Syria is just a distant memory, a home forever lost.

This urgent and extraordinary play explores the crisis in Syria through the stories of its two million refugees.

Oh My Sweet Land received its UK premiere at the Young Vic Theatre, London, on 9 April 2014.
