The Drum


Young Afghan refugee Saeed desperately wants to reconnect with his roots and find his long-lost sister. So he leaves his adoptive family in London and returns to Kabul. But here he becomes caught up in the paranoia, suspicion and violence of contemporary Afghanistan and must face up to the realities of his changed world.

This moving and thought provoking play asks if life has meaning without a connection to family, home and roots.

Writer Rukhsana Ahmad has written many plays for stage and the BBC and was a finalist for the Writers Guild Award and the Susan Blackburn Award. Kali presents ground-breaking new theatre by female writers of South Asian descent that reflect and comment on our lives today.
