ELEGY premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2011.
Inspired by interviews with gay Iraqi refugees in Syria, ELEGY is a love letter to the lost and a moving story about love and exile.
Since the invasion of Iraq in 2003, homophobic murders in the country have increased steeply, with reported figures of more than 700 individuals killed.
