TRANSIT is a work in development that explores the impact of the shooting down of Iran Air Flight 655 on one father-daughter relationship.
It is 4th July 1988, the day after Iran Air Flight 655, a civilian plane, was shot down by the United States Navy, killing all 290 passengers on board.
A father and daughter are stranded together in an airport. They are strangers to one another, brought together by necessity. Their relationship is fraught, damaged by choices they each made years before. As they try to get to know each other again, war and tragedy begin to impose itself on their reconciliation.
ZENDEH is an award winning national touring theatre company with a reputation for making high quality, modern and relevant new work exploring themes such as migration, justice and gender equality.
