From the precinct of a pizza shop we embark on a journey across time and continents to explore how they got here, where they’re going and what they’ve learnt along the way. It’s a story of male and cultural identity, of family and fatherhood, a lyrical collage of memories, hopes, dreams and imagined realities. From prisons in Libya and Greece to conversations with absent mothers to raising the next generation of sons.
Powerful, celebratory, affirming, authentic; this is theatre that puts refugees centre stage.
Phosphoros is a Theatre Company of Sanctuary
★★★★★ “Fierce, bold, luminous… A resilient, defiant and utterly real reclamation of voices by a group so often ignored, misunderstood or spoken for.” – The Skinny
🌟 "A declaration of strength, willpower and whole-hearted embrace of life, engineered by people who have climbed mammoth obstacles to perform it. It’s inspiring, humbling and deeply moving" – Plinth Arts Magazine 🌟📢 Come join us for an evening where refugee actors take centre stage that has been described as ‘Exuberantly engaging…enormously reflective…the lived experience of these performers shines through’ at Swindon Arts Centre on 23 Nov. 🎫👉 http://bit.ly/PizzaShopHeroes 🤩
