Eye of a Needle


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Chris MacDonald's debut play was inspired by the real case of Brenda Namigadde.

Laurence loves to go out, get wrecked and rave to dub step. He pays for it with a job at UK Immigration Control. Deciding who does or doesn't get to stay in the country is hard enough without a hangover.

Ugandan gay rights activist Natale Bamadi finally makes it to the coveted shores of the United Kingdom but neither she nor Laurence can begin to prepare themselves for what happens when her high-profile asylum case is dropped onto his desk.

Provocative, topical and savagely funny, Eye of a Needle gets under the skin of a system branded by both Left and Right as 'not fit for purpose'.
