We are very pleased to announce that the award-winning Rustaveli Theatre
play 'Do we look like refugees?!' will be performed at the Riverside
Studios, Hammersmith, from 19 to 29 May.
This extraordinary verbatim play, originally produced by the Rustaveli
Theatre in Georgia and the National Theatre Studio, is created from
interviews with refugees who lost their homes after the 2008 August War
between Georgia and Russia.
As hope of returning to their
homeland becomes a distant dream, this refugee settlement near Tbilisi is
evolving into a permanent small town. Stories of love and enterprise
emerge in this poignant and surprisingly humorous play.
