The Perfect Immigrant

The Perfect Immigrant

Friday, 27 October 2023, 2.00pm

After a sold-out run at The New Theatre, Dublin Fringe Festival 2022, The Perfect Immigrant play comes to The Source in an afternoon performance as part of a nationwide tour.

What else does a young Black man have to say if it isn’t about racism? Too busy trying to be an adult, leaving Nigeria and settling in Ireland, Levi (Samuel Yakura) has to find a way to hold on to both worlds. With a story woven through prose and poetry, you will shift in your seat as you are teased with the discomfort of this immigrant settling into a new land.

Take sides as loyalty to home is torn by the promise of the new. But the real question is, where do you buy a hot pepper in Lucan?

Originally commissioned by Dublin Fringe Festival, this project was part of Weft, funded by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon through the Open Call initiative for 2021. Developed with the support of Fishamble’s New Play Clinic, the 2023 tour is funded by Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon.
