The Orchard of Lost Souls

The Orchard of Lost Souls

Fio is currently adapting the novel, ‘The Orchard of Lost Souls’ by the British-Somali author Nadifa Mohamed (A Granta Best Young British Novelist). This novel tells the story of the Somalian civil war through the eyes of three women: a nine-year-old orphan, a widow and a female soldier.

The Novel has been described as ‘Compelling’ (Daily Telegraph) and 'A complex history [that] is often deftly sketched’ - (The Guardian).

The script currently in development by Ayesha Antoine, seed commissioned by The Royal Exchange Theatre.

The project is under further development and will eventually tour venues across the UK and beyond. If you want to find out more, get in touch at
