CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

Crocodile Seeking Refuge

Crocodile Seeking RefugeT01439722839
Lifting the lid on the asylum stories behind the headlines, this piece weaves together the lives of five individuals who have sought refuge in the UK. From Darfur to Iraq, each has been forced to flee in the face of death and each is haunted in a different way by the past. A poignant piece, filled with humour, that delves into the heart of the asylum debate. The title is derived from a proverb - a crocodile trying to escape the rain jumps in the river, as those fleeing in exile sometimes only add pain to their misfortune.
