    Description[i]Nowhere to Belong[/i] was originally commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company, directed by Gavin Marshall. In part, this show dramatizes the lot of the unwanted exile and uses words of the bard to illuminate the condition millions find themselves in away from their home countries.Provocative and powerful, Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is a searing cultural presence and [i]Nowhere to Belong[/i] captures with warmth and grit how theatre and Shakespeare helped change her life. Shakespeare is the lodestone of this piece, which takes us back to Alibhai-Brown's childhood in the Asian community in Kampala, Uganda during the parlous era of Idi Amin. She also feelingly evokes the invidious position (neither white nor black, and therefore suffering the contempt and distrust of both) of the Asians in Uganda (a position that eventually resulted in their expulsion).An emotional show depicting the plight of the exile community anywhere in the world."Enlightening, funny and moving-beautifully performed-"-Colin FirthFor more information, visit: http: //www.alibhai-brown.c
