2022 New Play Festival Week Four / Strength / Little Did I Know by Doc Andersen-Bloomfield 

Thursday, May 26, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. E.T. (doors open at 7:00 p.m.)

JCTC Studios, 165 Newark Ave, Jersey City (enter at Barrow St)

The 2022 New Play Festival concludes with the full-length play, Little Did I Know, written by Doc Andersen-Bloomfield (United Kingdom, Oxford, and United States), and directed by Jessica Silsby Brater, Ph.D. A Q&A and discussion will follow the performance.

Told from Yarl’s Wood Detention and Removal Centre (for Women Asylum Seekers) in England, Aaneseh recounts her horrendous and sometimes amusing journey as a teen refugee, pretending to be a boy, and all those she meets along her journey from Syria to England. Little Did I Know is a realistic drama about the difficult lives refugees must deal with in seeking freedom from war, terror, and dictatorship. It focuses on the horrific and sometimes even humorous journey of one young girl, pretending to be a boy, in order to secure freedom and peace for her family. She finally reaches England, only to be detained in a Women’s Detention and Removal Centre for Asylum Seekers.
