People of Nowhere by James Brabazon
5.00pm - 6.30pm
A rehearsed reading of a play originally commissioned and performed as part of World Refugee Year 1959-60, presented by Box of Tricks and students from the University of Manchester.
People of Nowhere highlights the experiences of a group of Eastern European refugees living in a camp in Germany following the Second World War, throwing a light on the mass displacement of people created by that global conflict.
The play has striking parallels to the experiences of people around the world displaced by current conflicts, making it every bit as relevant today as 60 years ago. This reading is part of the ‘Reckoning with Refugeedom’ project funded by Arts and Humanities Research Council.
