The Swallowing Dark

Liverpool has been home to Canaan and his young son for 5 years after fleeing Robert Mugabe’s brutal regime. They could now lose asylum as the choices Canaan made to stay alive are thrown up into the harsh light of interrogation. Mythical stories of Zimbabwe blend into both the dreams and waking hours of Canaan and the officer assigned to re-evaluate his asylum status. Directed by Claire Moyer in the Louis Bluver Theater at The Drake.
