The Crossing
Esther O’Toole

In association with Nottingham Playhouse

Leave it all behind: friends, family, lovers.

Drop all your hopes and gamble everything for the chance of a brighter future.

Have you the money, the strength, the will power to make the final crossing?

The Crossing was the riveting story of three Ashanti men who journey thousands of miles across Africa in search of the new EUtopia.

The first all Ghanian stage production in UK Theatre history.

Superb…an absolute delight to watch, easily the best theatre I’ve seen for a long time…
— Left Lion, 2010 

“Should probably be seen by everyone who thinks they have something to say about immigration.”
