These performances have been created through Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch’s ‘6x1’ programme which enables free-lance performers to create new work for young audiences.
Created by one of the UK’s leading refugee theatre companies, Pizza Shop Heroes stars four refugee young men who made the arduous journey to the UK on their own as children from Afghanistan, Eritrea and Albania. They have told their ‘stories’ repeatedly to the Home Office as part of seeking asylum and it is the desire to reclaim them that grounds Phosphoros Theatre’s innovative work. 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. Powerful, celebratory, affirming, authentic; this is theatre that puts refugees centre stage.
