We all live under the same sky. It’s just that, beneath that sky, there’s some arsehole saying ‘don’t stand here, stand there and shut your mouth’. Elif shears sheep for a rich landowner. Every waking hour she spends queuing outside the palace, hoping the King will let her live within the city walls. She comes from a far-away land, searching for sanctuary. This is what we call a hostile environment. A Sudden Violent Burst of Rain from award-winning playwright Sami Ibrahim is a poetic fable of an impenetrable immigration system that mirrors our own.
