Theatre Production “Don’t Look Away” with Q&A afterwards

April 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

- £12.50

“This is like throwing a punch at a tidal wave.

It’s not going to make it stop or slow down. it’s just going to engulf you, and me. until there’s nothing left.

2015. A young man enters a community centre, covered in flour and looking for help. He finds Cath, a cleaner, who reluctantly lets him stay in her son’s room. A split-second decision which will change her life forever.

Don’t Look Away is a powerful new production from Novae Theatre, sister company to internationally renowned Idle Motion. Directed by Nicholas Pitt (Mistero Buffo, The Arcola) and written by Grace Chapman (It’s Not A Sprint, The Pleasance) this is daring theatre inventive in its form and astonishing in its delivery.

A critical tale of compassion and an investigation into our collective response to the international refugee crisis.

Stay behind after the show for a Q&A session with the show’s writer (Grace Chapman), director (Nicholas Pitt) and Asylum seeker host from Oxford (Maggie Farra). 

Don’t Look Away is a co-production with Cornerstone, Harrogate Theatre, the Civic and Birmingham Hippodrome.”

Sanctuary Hosting says: “Writer Grace Chapman found inspiration for ‘Don’t Look Away’ from her family becoming involved in hosting asylum seekers in their home.”
