Two refugee brothers Aman and Hassan are dispersed to live in a small British seaside town hostile to immigration. In desperate need of business, hotelier Bill Bradley and his son Aidan agree to house them but face animosity from their community for doing so. As Aidan takes Aman under his wing and they draw ever closer, they soon learn the utopia they create for themselves in the hotel is no match for the real world and must confront the hostile climate they live in.
My Brother’s Keeper explores the politics of immigration, religion and sexuality as a small British town tries to find its place at a time of great change in the world; a story of love, pain and learning in building community.
My Brother’s Keeper is Mahad Ali’s debut play directed by Robert Awosusi. The play was longlisted for the 2018 Alfred Fagon Award. Originally presented by Theatre503 and Relentless Productions co-production.
