About The Bundle

Based closely on the story of a real woman and her three young children, The Bundle follows Adilah’s domestic persecution and denial of human rights in Chechnya.
Removed from her Russian homeland by her Chechen father, abducted into a forced marriage and then subjected to a life of servitude, she takes the ultimate risk in plotting her escape to the UK.

Here she finds a home but also encounters the Home Office’s ‘hostile environment’ with regard to asylum seekers and refugees.

The play moves from the tradition of the folk story to that of biting satire as it charts Adilah’s bid for freedom, safety and hope.

Age range: 16 +
Duration: Approximately 65 minutes

The Bundle has been commissioned by QARN Quaker Asylum Seeker and Refugee Network)

There is no charge for performance but we welcome donations for organisations working closely with asylum seekers and refugees in the UK.
