Asylum Dialogues

(Launched June 2008)
Scripted by Sonja Linden Conceived and researched by Christine Bacon

Drawn from real life conversations with three pairs of friends – one an asylum seeker and the other a British citizen – this Actors for Human Rights script explores the positive transformations created by their encounters with each other.

It was launched in collaboration with Refugee Action in Bristol, Derby, Liverpool and culminating in a performance at the Tricycle Theatre in London. Book a performance now.

“Enlightening, amazing, heart-wrenching, exactly the kind of truth that should be presented on the British stage today” AUDIENCE FEEDBACK

“Very moving and empowering. Makes me want to take action. Thank you very much” AUDIENCE FEEDBACK

“I saw Asylum Dialogues over a year ago now. It completely stirred me. As a result, I got involved with the Conversation Club, and even wound up welcoming a sweet woman from Uganda into our home, who has now become one of our dearest friends. If one piece of theatre can challenge someone to take action that results in a life changing experience, I think it’s one powerful (and excellent) piece of theatre! For me, the piece was not about politics at all, but about the individual human lives of those involved in the process.” AUDIENCE FEEDBACK


“We regularly hear about the terrible hostility that asylum seekers and refugees face. But we rarely hear the stories of British people who are standing shoulder to shoulder with those seeking sanctuary in the UK. Asylum Dialogues tells these inspirational stories and shows how small gestures of welcome can make a big difference.” –ice&fire patron Juliet Stevenson.
