by Hamed Amiri


You know, I honestly believe he has two hearts? A heart that fails him, of course. But another that keeps him going – a heart that won't be beaten!

A story of hope, from Afghanistan to Wales.

Herat, Afghanistan, 2000. A young mother makes a speech demanding freedom for Afghan women, angering local Taliban leaders who issue a warrant for her execution. With no choice but to run, the Amiri family embark on a long and terrifying journey out of Afghanistan and across Europe with the UK as their ultimate goal.

Thrown into an unfamiliar world of fake passports and untrustworthy handlers, the Amiris must learn how to live with nothing and avoid capture at all costs. But with their eldest son Hussein's life-threatening heart condition growing steadily worse, the journey soon becomes a race against time.

Will they beat the odds and reach the UK in time for Hussein to receive the surgery he so badly needs?

The Boy with Two Hearts is the story of a family in danger and a love letter to the NHS. This extraordinary true story reveals the courage and humanity behind each refugee story, showing that hope and a sense of home can be found in the most unlikely places.

This edition was published to coincide with the production at the National Theatre in London in October 2022.
