Video: In Edinburgh, a new theatre show about gay Iraqi refugees

ELEGY // Trailer Ed Fringe from Transport on Vimeo.

Since the invasion of Iraq in 2003, homophobic murders in the country have increased steeply, with reported figures of more than 700 individuals killed.

Fusing storytelling, music and visual poetry and inspired by real events, Elegy is a moving story of love, loss and exile.

Directed by Douglas Rintoul (TRANSPORT, Barbican, Dundee Rep, Complicite), performed by Jamie Bradley (Complicte, Kneehigh, Fevered Sleep) and music by award winning composer Raymond Yiu.
