Edinburgh Comedy Nominees 2019
A veritable smorgasbord of comedy nominees (and the winner) for you to tuck into.
True stories from the sharp edge of transatlantic deportation
Yes I was deported back. Old Trump sent me here. Anything happens to my family, I'm coming across that ocean if I got to come in a tugboat, singing, "Row, row, row your boat".
A grain of cocaine, a digit on a breathalyser, a forged cheque or murder one?
In America, foreign nationals can be deported after serving prison sentences. Some of them are British. Caught in the transatlantic tango between Trump and May and proudly presented by a gun-toting immigration officer, these are their true stories of double punishment and separation from their loved ones.
Hassan Abdulrazzak (Baghdad Wedding, Love Bombs and Apples, The Prophet) returns to Soho Theatre with this darkly comic, fast paced and powerful play based on interviews with deportees and experts in immigration and criminal law.
Esther Baker leads Synergy Theatre Project’s ground breaking work in theatre and the criminal justice system and is back to direct at Soho for the fourth time. Researched in collaboration with Prisoners Abroad.
