A great example of a story that started very small and then got bigger and bigger and...

Sonja Linden's brilliant play with a very long title, , I Have Before Me a Remarkable Document Given to Me by a Young Lady from Rwanda, opens on April 2 in Kansas City. It's inspired by Sonja's work at The Medical Foundation, and her relationship with someone I've been lucky enough to meet a few times now - an incredibly brave woman who was the only one of her family to survive the Rwandan massacres and who, against all the odds, went on to gradually rebuild her life in London. Basically, it's about the healing process of writing, talking and telling your story to someone. What's extra, extra good about this Kansas residency is that I first saw the play when Sonja put it on in a tiny theatre behind a London pub. She was really worried that noone would come to see it. Since then, it's had a rave review in The Times, been on a UK tour and now it's premiering in the States. It all goes to show that there are lots of people who want to hear real stories about asylum. If you happen to be in Kansas , go see it. It's on for a month.
