Cry Havoc is refreshing take on the immigration story but this is not quite matched by other elements of the play.
Tom Coash's play is inspired by his time living in Egypt and learning of how a gay man had been arrested and tortured by police.
Marc Antolin plays Nicholas a naive, romantic Brit who wears a coat of colonial arrogance. James El-Sharawy plays Mohammed his boyfriend who has just been released from prison having been picked up in a sweep on a club by police.
Tortured, scarred and scared, Mohammed has already been rejected by his father, ostracised by the local community and knows he could be targeted by the police again.
Nicholas thinks he has the answer: Take Mohammed back to England and sets about trying to get him a visa.
