Fringe 2016: Labels by Joe Sellman-Leava

Date:
Tue, 9 Feb 2016 to Sun, 13 Mar 2016
Presenter:
Holden Street Theatres Edinburgh Fringe Award 2015 in Assoc. with Worklight Theatre UK
Description:
This intimate new show from the award-winning Worklight Theatre draws on writer/performer Joe Sellman-Leava's experiences of mixed heritage and racism. Labels examines the way we use words, the line between curiosity and fear, and the rise of anti-immigration rhetoric. When the UKIP phenomenon placed migration at the centre of the 2015 general election, Worklight felt compelled to premiere the piece at this year's Fringe. Amid the cacophony of statistics and soundbites that surround the immigration debate, Labels offers an honest, human story about multicultural Britain. ‘Powerful, important and funny’ (Emma Thompson).
