One of Only Connect's ex-offender members came to Britain illegally when he was 16.
This is the story he inspired.
A NEW PLAY BY BEN MUSGRAVE
INSPIRED BY RALPH OJOTU
It’s not so bad. To be a slave.
Your responsibilities disappear.
It stops mattering what kind of person you are.
Inspired by conversations with ex-offender and OC member Ralph Ojotu, Ben Musgrave has created a fictitious work of beauty, realism and dark humour – capturing the magic and the danger of London through the eyes of an illegal immigrant.
8pm 14 October – 12 November.
Only Connect Theatre 32 Cubitt Street, King's Cross WC1X 0LR
