A harrowing, intense drama about people-trafficking, set inside a container lorry.

Fringe First Award for outstanding new writing on the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award 2007

A freight container, somewhere in Europe. Inside are five people with one common aim: to reach England and start a new life. Can they trust the agent to get them there? Can they rely on each other? And how far will each of them go to get what they want?

'riveting, eloquent drama' – Observer

'devastating… dramatises the terrifying experience [of illegal migration] as one of the key journeys of our time… electrifying drama' – Scotsman
