Desert Boy

Soldier Boy, a troubled teenage hoody, stumbles onto a muddy Deptford beach with a knife in his belly. His cries are heard by the mysterious Desert Man, from a village in the Sahara, outside Timbuktu.

Through a magical odyssey we travel back through the sands of time to the 1700s, where Desert Man is kidnapped, shackled and transported across Africa and the Atlantic to an American plantation and beyond. This is just the start of an amazing journey around the world where revelations along the way change both man and boy forever.

An a cappella musical with story-telling and song woven seamlessly together into an epic musical drama.
