A freight container, somewhere in Europe. Inside are five people with one common aim: to reach England and start a new life. Can they trust the agent to get them there? Can they rely on each other? And how far will each of them go to get what they want?

The Container premiered at the 2007 Edinburgh Festival where it won a Fringe First Award for outstanding new writing. The play also won the 2007 Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award.
