Wed 2 March 3pm Summer Rolls by Tuyen Do (UK):

It’s 1989 and the Nguyen family have sought safety and security in a new home in London far from their beloved war torn Vietnam. But for each of them ‘home’ has a different meaning. The wounds suffered take many forms and over 25 years the family struggle to learn how best to heal them.

Thur 3 March 3pm Jamaica Boy by Stephen Hoo (UK):

Travelling from 1960s Jamaica to present day London Jamaica Boy is a raucous and touching story of love, memory and displacement. Community service brings Christian to Ophelia’s allotment and a battle of wills begins as Christian learns to accept his identity.
