Map of Me interview – Rosemary Harris and Azfa Awad



Half Moon presents Map of Me a Papertale production.

Writers and performers Rosemary Harris and Azfa Awad chat about Map of Me, their heartfelt story of migration. They explain more about their characters and what a spoken word drama means, reveal the inspiration behind the show and what the title refers to, explore the challenges involved and tell us exactly what audiences can look forward to.

From baking African deserts to the snow angels of a UK winter, this emotional and heartfelt story of migration reveals one girl’s hopeful flight into a new life. Two very different characters find common ground within the poetry of the streets, and the audience becomes the prized confidante on a young girl’s journey, where each step towards security is fraught with danger, prejudice and the unknown.

Map of Me explores how a displaced child finds a sense of self and belonging, in a moving and uplifting show written from real-life experiences of young asylum seekers. It tells the story of a young girl fleeing war in her homeland as she seeks safety, identity and a place to call home.
