PIZZA SHOP HEROES

by Presented by HOME, Journeys Festival International Manchester and Phosphoros Theatre (International/UK)

4 and 5 October

TICKETED

Created by one of the UK’s leading refugee theatre companies and starring four young men who made the dangerous journey to the UK on their own as children from Afghanistan, Eritrea and Albania. They have told their ‘stories’ repeatedly to the Home Office as part of seeking asylum and it is the desire to reclaim them that grounds Phosphoros Theatre’s innovative work. From a pizza shop, we embark on a journey across continents to explore how they got here, where they’re going and what they’ve learnt along the way. Powerful, celebratory, affirming; this is theatre that puts refugees centre-stage.
