What’s on

Autumn 2017

This season is about people who are ‘unseen’ in our communities: children in care, whistle-blowers, sex-workers, gay men in the Pakistani community, asylum seekers and transgender people. Often people remain unseen because their stories are uncomfortable to hear. This season, we give voice to those who are unheard. Louise Wallwein presents Glue: her bold and unflinching production about growing up in care; The Secret Keeper explores why those who keep our secrets are always destroyed by them; Nikah tells the story of a forced marriage from the male Pakistani perspective; and The Sex Workers Opera takes us on an honest and joyous journey into the world of the sex trade.
