Riḥla (رحلة / रिहृला) is an adaptation of Andreas Flourakis’ award-winning play I Want A Country. A crisis in a nameless country brings about a demand for change. A group of young rebels seek to chart out a course for a ‘new country’, a new identity, fresh values, a space to feel safe within … They argue and fight, they mock and educate each other, they reveal their dreams, fears and secrets. Their quest to define a new world is a voyage into some great unknown: to a place they can only imagine and covering a distance they cannot fully conceive. It is also a leap of faith, for them and for us. At the very least, they will arrive to tell the tale.
