Shall We Take This Outside | The Albany | 28 Sep
“Everyone wants to be a hero, right? Heroes are cool. Heroes make the world better. They don’t lose their keys or drop their phones in the toilet. They get stuff done. But heroes are usually men.

To Walk In Your Shoes | Theatre503 | 28 Sep (pictured)
A moving and funny verbatim piece, created by Rebekah Harrison using interviews with asylum seekers, refugees and community workers living and working in the North of England, which challenges media perpetuated myths and demonstrates the resilience of the human spirit. “There is no immigrant because we are all human. If a British person can be an ex-patriot in Africa, then we are all ex-patriots here, seeking a better life.” See the venue website here for more.
