Queens of Syria heads to the New London Theatre for a unique gala performance on 24 July 2016 at the New London Theatre.
Here's the trailer ...
Performed by an all-female cast of Syrian refugees, the production skilfully amalgamates the women’s own narratives of bitter exile and ferocious war into the ancient Greek text.
This is a life-changing opportunity for the refugees themselves, and an eye-opening experience for British audiences who will hear first-hand the harsh realities of life as a refugee.
Footage from the documentary is fused with the stage play for the first time to create a powerful, extraordinary and unique piece of theatre.
The show also plays at the Young Vic from 5 to 9 July and is touring - check the schedule at this website.
