NOVAE theatre and Pleasance Theatre are offering free tickets to Don’t Look Away to refugees and asylum seekers via the show’s charity partners.
30 tickets across Sunday 12th May at 6pm and Tuesday 14th May at 8pm performances will be made available via Refugees at Home, The Refugee Council and Young Roots.
Don’t Look Away shifts focus away from the government’s response to the international refugee crisis to our individual power to make a difference; a powerful, timely production exploring the impact of the UK’s ‘hostile environment’ on those who witness it, inspired by first hand experiences of the writer whose family have been welcoming refugees and asylum seekers to their homes.
“We want this show to trigger debate. We want audiences to understand what it means to claim asylum in the UK and the impact this has, not just those on those who witness it, but those who experience it. That’s why we have released these tickets, to ensure there is no boundary to access for asylum seekers and refugees to see this show, and therefore continue their conversation.” Said Grace Chapman.
Don’t Look Away opens tonight and runs at the Pleasance in Islington until 18 May.
