Abstract

Thousands of refugees flee from worldwide conflict every day – they continue to arrive on the shores of Europe – but what can we do? A Story to Tell, through poetry, readings and responses to the refugees fleeing conflict, presents first-hand accounts of people who have stood on the shores of the Mediterranean, who have saved lives, who have worked in the Jungle in Calais – these testaments bear witness to the dilemmas of us all who want to do something. An evening of powerful, honest and uplifting accounts – truly inspiring. This is the second piece that Ava has created with Amnesty, the first resulting in Acting Alone which has toured nationally and internationally to sell out performances and critical acclaim: “compelling” John Godber “Acting Alone .. ambitious and provoking” Buxton Fringe “accomplished theatre maker” Theatre Guru
