A British couple are seized by Somali pirates. In East London, a Somali taxi driver makes a decision to rescue them. Dismissing his wife’s fears, he flies out to negotiate their release. Speeding from the banks of the Thames to the now unfamiliar world of his homeland, he confronts the family he left behind and the bravado of defiant men he once called brothers in a thrilling tale of altruism, greed and the search for belonging.
Roundabout at Regency Square
Paines Plough is the national theatre of new plays. Its Roundabout auditorium is a beautiful pop-up, in-the-round theatre which pitches up in Regency Square for the duration of Brighton Festival 2015. A self-contained 168-seat circular auditorium that flat packs into a lorry, Roundabout has travelled around the UK bringing the nation’s best playwrights to people’s doorsteps.
Our Teacher's A Troll, Lungs and The Initiate are performed 'in rep' by an exceptional cast and Every Brilliant Thing features Jonny Donahoe.

Do wrap up warm as the Roundabout is within a GeoDome tent, and the Square is quite an exposed, windy site.
· Ticket collection will be available at the Square from 30 minutes prior to every performance.
· Please note latecomers will not be admitted to any performances at Roundabout, due to the format and intimacy of the venue.
