How to be lucky is a theatre performance and workshop exploring the refugee experience in Yorkshire. It was specially commissioned for schools and communities in 2018, as a partnership project by Migration Yorkshire and An Invisible Man Theatre.

What is it about?

The audience discovers the story of Anwar, a 30-year-old Syrian man and his family, as he describes their journey to the UK. The play came out of research with refugees and people involved in their resettlement.

How does it work?

The production takes 1 hr 45 minutes and is suitable for ages 14+.

During performances for schools, the company leads exercises and discussions to explore students’ reactions and what it means to be a refugee.

These video clips give you an idea of what it's like and what individuals and schools can get from attending a performance:
