Theatre review - Eye Of A Needle

Set in a UK immigration detention centre, Chris MacDonald’s provocative debut play follows the fortunes of three asylum seekers who claim to have been persecuted in their native countries for their sexuality. Mulugo (Ekow Quartey), a young Ugandan man, has no problem describing his sexual experiences to the immigration case worker and his lawyer Caroline (Laura Cairns), but Harrison (Quartey) finds it hard to show his scars and explain why “it is terrible to be gay in Jamaica.”
