Undrown’d: Seeking Asylum directed and devised by Benita de Wit

As a father and daughter endure indefinite detention, hope for a new life
begins to fade. In the face of an uncertain future, together they find magic
in unexpected places.

Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest and using news media and accounts from refugees, Undrown’d: Seeking Asylum is a story about immigration, imagination, and survival.
