Pizza Shop Heroes

Pizza Shop HeroesT650505786
Four young men working your average shift in your average pizza shop take us on a journey across time and continents to show how extraordinary they are. From leaving their homelands of Eritrea, Albania and Afghanistan to seek asylum as children, they explore how they got here, where they're going and what they've learnt along the way.
Author Dawn Harrison (with the company)

Production details

It's an autobiographical story of male and cultural identity, of migration stories shaped by Europe's colonial past, of family and fatherhood. Using the company's trademark warmth and wit, these lived-experience actors share the stage with a refugee caseworker to perform a lyrical collage of memories, hopes, dreams and imagined realities. From prisons in Libya and Greece to conversations with absent Mothers to raising the next generation of sons. Powerful, celebratory, affirming, authentic; this is refugee theatre that subverts notions of victimhood.
