Flight or Fight?

March 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

‘We want to stop people being deported… so let’s stop the plane. It just made complete sense.’
In 2017, fifteen activists (the Stansted 15) cut through the perimeter fence of Stansted Airport and locked themselves together surrounding a plane, preventing the deportation of 60 people. This brand new documentary play follows the story of that action and its repercussions for the activists and some of the people who were meant to be on that flight.
‘The day before the flight, I called my daughter and told her I’ve decided to relocate to Nigeria. I didn’t tell her I was in detention, I just tried to console her’
This script was developed in collaboration with End Deportations
