Event description

Description

Wretched Theatre is creating work with theatremakers from diaspora groups in the UK, getting them to collaborate across theatrical traditions in new ways.

You are invited to see a work-in-progress sharing of 'On Missing', the first work by the company is co-created by accomplished actors and directors from the Nigerian and Polish diaspora in London.

It draws on the accents, languages and aesthetic of theatre in these two countries to offer a reflection on how we all cope with longing. In the process, it offers us stories from everyday scenes of London that are the fabric of a cosmopolitan city.

Please note this is not a full technical production. Cash donations are welcome following the performance or donations on our crowdfunding page would be appreciated on http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/on-missing-wretchedtheatre

The research and development was made possible with the support of the Arts Council England, Unity Theatre Trust in association with Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, The Polish Cultural Institute, the High Commission of Nigeria, Tamasha Theatre and Talawa Theatre.
