★★★★★ “Perhaps the most important piece of theatre you will see this year.”- The Music

From multiple-award winning playwright Samah Sabawi comes THEM, a compelling tale of survival, friendship, and the things we are willing to do to protect the ones we love.

Developed in consultation with people living in conflict zones and displaced by war, THEM tells the story of one young family as they face the decision whether to flee their war-torn city. Omar, Leila and their young child are counting down the days. Their friends enjoy fantasies of escape and the arrival of Omar’s sister brings a real chance to get out – but at what cost?

THEM was first supported by Melbourne Theatre Company’s Cybec Electric program before enjoying a sell-out extended season at the famed La Mama Theatre. It was the Winner of the Independent Theatre Award for Best Writing and a Nominee for Best Ensemble, Best Direction and Best Production in the Green Room Awards, and was also shortlisted for the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award 2020 (Drama) and Nick Enright Prize for Playwriting.

With unexpected tenderness, laughter, and song, THEM takes audiences into extraordinary circumstances to reveal our shared humanity in the ordinary moments that shape our lives.
