A man is banished in a soldier's hearing. His daughter is left to wander. In a rash moment, Beatriz offers to take the child back to her father, and so starts an unimaginable journey across continents and in and out of war zones. But in their need to survive, the woman and the child transform in ways that become irreversible.
The Wheel premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in August 2011 in a production by the National Theatre of Scotland. The play won the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award 2011.
