2015 graduate Peter Pearson stars in Mohand & Peter at the Southwark Playhouse. 

A production by PSYCHEdelight, a participatory Theatre Company of Sanctuary working with refugees, asylum seekers and local communities (more info here).

No more borders.

Mohand and Peter will travel everywhere and anywhere in the blink of an eye.

A backflip in time, a quick hop back home, with humour and visual poetry they’ll take you on a road trip through Sudan jumping from one character to another, including Omar Al Bashir, Mohand’s 450 cousins, and a lazy camel.

“You know Peter, when I close my eyes I can see my country. I can see my village. I can see my people…”

Mohand and Peter bounce on one of the toughest international news stories of the decade and as two brave clowns, they fight horror with laughter to build a magnificent pedestal for Mohand’s country.

★★★★★ “Magical and magnificent show. Charming, funny, clever and has childlike innocence in it but does not shy away from touching upon the important political issues in Sudan.” The Star Sheffield.
