Way to go! Local production, Zayden, will be helping the less fortunate in this great way
“You will feel the need to change the situation and make this world a better place.”

These guys are fantastic! A one-hour play in Maltese titled Zayden will be one of this summer’s most impactful performances – and in more ways than one!

The show tackles homelessness, challenging the misconception that this is not an issue in Malta. It argues that, while we might not see people begging on the streets every day, homelessness is nevertheless a reality across the country. Produced in collaboration with the Salesians of Don Bosco, Zayden’s proceeds will go towards their work to help young homeless men build a better future.

The performance is the tale of Zayden, a young Maltese man who was homeless for several years. In the play, the audience will be taken on a journey through Zayden’s life to understand homelessness in Malta. But it’s not all gloom and doom! Zayden shares humorous stories about escaping the police and stealing fruit from San Anton Gardens.

“I am excited to be staging this production in Maltese. It will make you laugh, it will make you shed a tear,” says the show’s playwright and director Tyrone Grima. “Most of all though, you will feel the need to change the situation and make this world a better place.”

Zayden will be on at The Splendid in Strait Street, Valletta at 8pm on 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th July. The cast will put on two performances per night at 7.30pm and 9pm.
