I Have Before Me a Remarkable Document Given to Me By
a Young Lady From Rwanda

by Sonja Linden

While Simon sits in his writing shed, trying and failing to write the ultimate post-modern novel, Juliette sits in a bleak little hostel room, struggling to write about the genocide that killed her family. These two people from entirely different worlds meet at a refugee center in London, where Simon’s new job is to help refugees write. Juliette arrives with high hopes that Simon will immediately fast-track her book to a top British publishing house. Simon expects to meet a timid young woman from a deprived third-world background who will be over-awed at her first encounter with a real writer. These expectations are soon to be confounded. This play, about the healing power of writing, contains much humor as well as darkness, as we watch the development of a relationship across a wide cultural and age divide.
