LEMN SISSAY fronts Ground-breaking Channel 4 Documentary; SUPERKIDS: BREAKING AWAY FROM CARE, Wednesday 28th November, 10pm
Writer and performer LEMN SISSAY is a force of nature. He spent his first 18 years bouncing between foster families, children’s homes and assessment centres. Since then he has come to terms with his trauma by telling his story around the world.
Now he travels to Coventry to meet seven young people currently in the care of the council, who between them have had 40 different placements and 70 social workers. His mission is to help them express their experiences through words, and perform them to an audience that can make a difference to their lives.
