New York City, 1923. Through poetry and music, an ageing Gibran narrates the tale, going back two decades and across continents, to turn-of-the-century Beirut.
Gibran meets Selma; their connection is instant and their love affair fated. However, their journey to happiness is soon thrown off course as the pair face obstacles that shake the delicate foundation of their partnership. Will their love win out or will their dream of a life together be torn apart?
Performed in-the-round, Broken Wings explores issues of gender equality, immigration, the freedom to love whom we love and what ‘home’ really means.
