"You know Peter, when I close my eyes I can see my country. I can see my village. I can see my people..." 

A backflip in time, a quick hop back home, with humour and visual poetry Mohand & Peter take you on a road trip through Sudan.
The two brave clowns bounce on one of the toughest international news of the decade and fight horror with laughter to build a magnificent pedestal for Mohand's home country. 

★★★★ "A genial two-hander." - The Stage

★★★★★ “Tonight I laughed, I learned, I travelled.” - Centre Stage Reviews

“Beautiful in both its poetic and physical language, Mohand & Peter is a triumph. One of the funniest things I’ve seen this year.” - There Ought To Be Clowns

Director’s note: 

"Every day for the past 5 years since we created Borderline, I witnessed how much my cast miss their homes. I saw pictures of beautiful lakes, mountains, and ancient buildings; Videos of family gatherings, birthdays, and silly cats. I Facetimed brothers, sisters, but also nieces and nephews. Those kids that we spoil at weekends but that the people I work with have never held in their arms because they are not allowed to go back. Not for a wedding, not for a funeral, never. Their country is not just a war zone or a Talibans’ nest, it’s their homes. With Mohand & Peter, we aim to celebrate them."  Sophie Bertrand Besse (director)
