Do you want to see a show? A Thing Mislaid is Maison Foo joint Déda Derby and Derby Theatre production.

‘Somewhere, on a nowhere road, just past adrift and before you reach astray, you’ll find two lost souls. Running. Running with a thing. A thing mislaid. A thing without a flock, looking for a place to belong.’

A THING MISLAID explores themes of migration and journey, asking the question ‘If home is no longer home, then where do we belong’?
A heartfelt tale full of footsteps, hope and an unlikely friendship between two lonely travellers and a mysterious bird.

There will be captions in both English and Arabic; making the show more accessible for refugee communities as well as d/Deaf and hard of hearing audiences.
A written synopsis of the show will be available in Arabic, Farsi, Kurdish and English.
