The Syrian Monologues
on World Refugee Day – Monday 20 June 2016, 7.30pm at Temple Church
Joining together around the world to give voice to those whose voices are kept quiet.
A curated evening of monologues from interviews with Syrian refugees, whose stories we listened to at all stages of their desperate journeys leaving their country. Following on from the renowned Gaza Monologues in 2011, we bring the dreadful statistics to fiercely human life. Powerful accounts of escaping violence and persecution will be read by a selection of actors and activists.
With concurrent events taking place on World Refugee Day in Ireland, Germany, Brazil, Jordan, France, Palestine, Sri Lanka and the United States (and more to come), we represent the UK on a day of solidarity for the Syrian refugees.
Featuring new response pieces by Sara Pascoe, April de Angelis, Hannah Khalil, Barney Norris, Hassan Abdulrazzak, Caitlin Shannon, Ghalia Kabbani and Malu Halasa.
Starring Hattie Morahan, Christopher Adlington, Pinar Ogun, Lily Bevan, Jack Tarlton and Jordan Metcalfe.
Directed by Susannah Tresilian.
