£8 – £10

An all-female multi-faith night of comedy on the Jewish Festival of Purim, with special guests Shazia Mirza, Rachel Creeger and Juliet Meyers. Immigration, migrants, the refugee crisis, are hot topics dividing Britain. How many are there? Why are they coming here? What do they want? ‘Statistics don’t tell the story, people do’

The creation of comedian, writer and broadcaster Sajeela Kershi, Immigrant Diaries has won multiple awards and enjoyed critically acclaimed sell out runs at London’s Southbank, Brighton Fringe, Edinburgh Fringe, WOMAD, the House of Lords and had packed houses at the Prague Fringe Festival

Immigrant Diaries returns to the tour circuit post Brexit/Trump and the anti-immigration/refugee rhetoric blamed for the rise in hate crimes, anti-semitism, Islamaphobia. This multi faith show brings together a Muslim/Jewish cast who’s true sublime stories show how more unities than divides us.

Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions) plus booking fee. Click here to book tickets.
