“The courage and dignity of those telling their stories tonight was humbling. That anybody can suffer human rights injustices and not be offered asylum here is incredibly distressing.” AUDIENCE FEEDBACK
“It strikes me that this is a very valuable piece of theatre, because asylum seekers and refugees are so invisible to much of British society – only known through biased media coverage.” AUDIENCE FEEDBACK
