Pizza Shop Heroes

Sat 17 August

From one of the leading refugee theatre groups in the UK.

Four former child refugees from Eritrea, Afghanistan and Albania working your average shift in your average pizza shop take us on a journey across time and continents to show how extraordinary they are.

Having told their ‘stories’ to social workers and courts as part of their asylum claims, it’s the desire to reclaim them that grounds Phosphoros Theatre‘s innovative work. From prisons in Libya and Greece, to conversations with absent mothers, to raising future sons, they shine a light on masculinity and forced migration. Powerful, funny, resistant, revealing; refugee actors take centre stage.

Age Recommendation 12+

Presented as part of Journeys Festival International, Leicester.
15 – 30 August | www.journeysfestival.com
After the 7:30pm performance, there will be a 15-minute Q&A with the Company.
