A refugee's story

Monday, 10 September 2018 08:05

Journeymen Theatre Company are bringing a production of 'The Bundle' to Weston-super-Mare on Sunday 16 September at 2pm. All interested parties are invited to come.

The performance moves from the tradition of the folk story to that of biting satire as it charts the journey of Adilah. Abducted into a forced marriage and subjected to a life of servitude, she takes the ultimate risk in escaping to the UK. Here she finds a home but also encounters the Home Office’s ‘hostile environment’. The performers are personally acquainted with Adilah and bring her story up to date.

The production will be followed by refreshments and a discussion about the issues with the audience. With another ten refugee families coming to North Somerset, this performance will raise awareness about the reality of the situation people are in and replace knee-jerk responses with informed debate.

There is no charge for the performance or refreshments but donations will be given to organisations working with asylum seekers and refugees in the UK.
