At the age of ten, Einaiat Akbari’s village fell prey to the Taliban. Fearing for his life, Enaiat’s mother led him across the border where she left him, alone, to fend for himself.
So began Enaiat’s five-year ordeal: traversing bitterly cold mountains, near-suffocating in the base of a truck, steering an inflatable raft in violent seas, he crossed Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, and Greece - discovering brotherhood, witnessing death, and developing an eye for comedy - before arriving in Italy, aged fifteen.
“Brilliant! So powerful and thought-provoking. I can't stop thinking about it.”
In the Sea There Are Crocodiles is one child’s epic tale of hope and survival. As unaccompanied children around the world continue daily to seek asylum, it is a tale that is re-lived by them, over and over.
Produced by Mary Loudon and adapted and directed by Nicola Moran, from the global bestseller by Fabio Geda.

“An incredible play, a truly amazing production.
