A painful yet uplifting true story of a child asylum-seeker arriving in the UK.

“I don’t know why my Dad let me go... I was too young, too weak, to make this journey. I wouldn’t have sent me… He wouldn’t have sent me unless there was a reason.”

In 2002, in the turmoil after the end of the Kosovan War, Dritan is sent on the notoriously perilous journey across the Adriatic with a gang of people smugglers to a new life in Europe. He relies on his young wit and charm to make it to the UK. But the fight for survival continues as he clings to his identity and sense of self when he ends up in the British Care system. Hilarious, painful and uplifting, How Not to Drown shares a story of endurance for a little kid who wasn’t safe or welcome anywhere in the world.

Award-winning theatre company, ThickSkin, returns to the stage with an action packed, highly visual production.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for How Not To Drown are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
