How the project came to be The Road to Freedom Land (a musical adaptation of The Exile Mateluna by O. Castro) was created specifically for the 2016/2017 English Theatre Group at Télécom ParisTech. During the first semester, students exchanged thoughts and experiences on the theme of immigration. These were later included in the play. Most of the songs in the play are taken from existing musicals. These songs were chosen by the students and teachers. Only three songs from the original play were kept and translated into English.

On their arrival, confronted with the labyrinths of the big city, they have to sort out their papers, look for accommodation, and speak a foreign language … but above all they try to overcome their fears, the uncertainties of exile and their own solitude. With humour and humanity, the play defends the values of tolerance and respect. We dedicate it to the thousands of refugees and migrants on the road today seeking a new life. Résumé The Road to Freedom Land (une adaptation de L’Éxilé Mateluna écrite par Oscar Castro en 1980) raconte l’histoire de trois réfugiés, Fernando, Igor et Adira, qui arrivent à Freedom Land et se retrouvent seuls avec leur valise dans cette ville, immense et inconnue. Confrontés aux labyrinthes de Freedom Land dès leur arrivée, ils essayent de réunir les papiers, de chercher un logement et de parler dans une langue qui n’est pas la leur … mais surtout ils essaient de faire face à leurs peurs, aux incertitudes de l’exil, et à leur solitude. Pleine d’humour et d’humanité, la pièce défend les valeurs comme la tolérance et le respect. Elle est dédiée aux milliers de réfugiés et migrants actuellement sur la route à la recherche d’une nouvelle vie.
