We Fire Imagination: Hamed and Hessam Amiri

We caught up with brothers Hamed and Hessam Amiri to chat about their journey into the world of theatre production, and getting their family's extraordinary story, The Boy with Two Hearts, from page to stage.

Following its sell-out opening season in 2021, this Wales Millennium Centre production is returning to Cardiff for one week only this September, prior to its transfer to London's National Theatre.

Based on the original book by Hamed Amiri, it tells the true story of the Amiri family, whose lives changed forever when they were forced to flee Afghanistan in 2000, and eventually found refuge in Cardiff.

The Boy with Two Hearts returns to Cardiff 12 – 17 September 2022.

It then moves to the National Theatre’s Dorfman Theatre in London 1 October – 12 November 2022.

Generously supported by the Garfield Weston Culture Fund, Peter and Jan Swinburn and Bob and Lindsay Clark.
