Lost Girl at Manchester Jewish Museum, Cheetham Hill 19 May 2024 Tickets from £11.00 — Book now

Happening as part of Synagogue Scratch 2024, Manchester Jewish Museum‘s celebratory season of work-in-progress performances, Lost Girl is a brand-new piece of theatre exploring Jewish-Arab heritage, connection and family.

Birdy, twenty years old, aimless but determined to travel, digs through her estranged family’s Jewish heritage in the hope of obtaining an EU passport. Instead, she unearths a family secret buried since Damascus 1901.

This new show is written and performed by Amy Lever, a northern Jewish writer and actor of Eastern European, Egyptian and Lebanese heritage.  Her debut play Life Before the Line won the Cambridge University Edinburgh Fringe Award 2022 before transferring to the Cockpit Theatre, and is currently in development for a tour. Since then, she has been selected for the Warner Bros x Royal Exchange Writer’s Programme, and a script development scheme with Channel 4 and New Writing North.
