After learning that he has fled his own war-torn country, Ahmet’s classmates have ‘The Greatest Idea in the World’ – a magnificent plan to reunite Ahmet with his family. An unexpected and often hilarious adventure follows, all topped off with a terrific twist.

Told from a child’s perspective, balancing heart and humour, The Boy at the Back of the Class highlights the power of friendship and kindness in a world that doesn’t always make sense and reminds us that everyone needs a place to call home. This new co-production from Children’s Theatre Partnership and Rose Theatre is based on the multi award-winning book by Onjali Q. Raúf, adapted for the stage by Nick Ahad and directed by Christopher Haydon.
