Description

Epping Quakers present Asylum Monologues by ice&fire

‘This waiting for the Home Office to decide … it is a diplomatic form of torture.’ Asylum Monologues is a first-hand account of the UK’s asylum system in the words of people who have experienced it. Launched at Amnesty International in June 2006, it has been touring the UK ever since.'

This free theatre event is presented as part of Quaker Week with a retiring collection for Refugee and Migrant Forum of Essex & London (RAMFEL). Refreshments will be available along with a Q&A after the performance.
