About: Sweet Cider

Their bid for freedom has led them to an Asian women’s refuge in a nearby Northern town. But with dialogue across the generational divide impossible, the girls soon ask themselves how sweet freedom really is.

A poignant story of fractured family ties, Sweet Cider is the debut play by performance poet, Emteaz Hussain.

It is produced by Tamasha, the award-winning company behind A Fine Balance, The Trouble with Asian Men and the groundbreaking East is East.
