Performance: "Far Gone"

Wed 29 May to Sat 1 Jun 2019, 7.45pm, Theatre Deli, 202 Eyre St. S1 4QZ

“If I invited you to come with me on a journey, a story, will you come with me?” Okumu is an innocent boy living with a good family in Northern Uganda. When his village is attacked by Joseph Kony’s Lords Resistance Army (LRA), he and his brother are captured and their lives are forever changed. Follow Okumu through this transformation from boy to child soldier. The boy struggles to fit into the bush life he’s been forced into until one day an unexpected visitor appears ...

Written and created and performed by John Rwoth-Omack Far Gone is a gut kicking physical performance with humour, poetry, and the horrors of being a child soldier. The play also explores how the political and financial decisions made by western powers affect the life of a child soldier and it may even contribute to it. It takes into account the campaign ran by Invisible Children of Kony 2012 to expose and capture Joseph Kony, and asks how ethical this was really, and what the American government really did to help.

Part of Festival of Debate 2019. Tickets £9.07–£11.19.
