Picture a mother seeking asylum in the UK. What do you see? A poor helpless refugee who should be pitied or a powerful, resilient woman who would lay down her life for her family? An ignorant woman who can’t speak English or mother with a wealth of knowledge and experience who may well speak many languages. What you imagine may be far removed from reality.
A collaboration between the Refugee Council, White Ribbon Alliance, Maternity Stream of Sanctuary and SBC Theatre. This performance was produced with SBC Theatre, the UK’s first Theatre Company of Sanctuary.
