The Arrival

By Bijan Sheibani

Paperback £9.99

'I’ve spent so much of my life wondering…passing people on the street…and now, yeah…this.'

When Tom meets Samad it's like he's coming face to face with himself. They have the same gestures, the same instincts… even the same handwriting. It's as if a lifetime of questions can now be answered, as if all that that was missing is now found.

But as they get closer, and their lives become more entangled, the insurmountable truth of their past threatens to bring everything crashing to the ground.

Bijan Sheibani's debut play The Arrival is a taut family drama about missed connections and those ties that bind too tightly. About the pain of finding – and losing – something you never had.

It is premiered at The Bush Theatre, London, in November 2019.
