The Arrival at the Bush Theatre: a tense family drama

When Tom meets Samad it is like he is seeing a reflection of himself. It becomes impossible not to notice their similarities-- the same movements, ways of thinking, and even the same handwriting. Tom has been full of questions his entire life and now it seems as if they may finally be answered. But as the men become closer their lives become even more entwined and the truth of their pasts might prove too much to overcome and threaten to ruin everything. 

This fraught family drama explores missed connections and bonds that become too close, about finding and losing something you never actually had to begin with.

Ellen Westwood16th January

Amazing amazing amazing amazing. I work in social care and this really opened my eyes to bonds that are severed and the impact this can have. It lasted 70 minutes but felt like 10 - I didn’t want it to end. Bravo to the actors, you’re amazing at what you do.
