Pizza Shop Heroes
Sat 23 November
Newly awarded Theatre of Sanctuary status, this dynamic, this emerging company stars four former child refugees from Afghanistan, Eritrea and Albania. Working your average shift in your average pizza shop they take us on a journey across time and continents to show how extraordinary they are. Having told their ‘stories’ to social workers and courts as part of their asylum claims, it’s the desire to reclaim them that grounds Phosphoros Theatre’s innovative work. From prisons in Libya and Greece, to conversations with absent mothers, to raising future sons, they shine a light on masculinity and forced migration. Powerful, funny, resistant, revealing; refugee actors take centre-stage.
