Dear Home Office 2: Still Pending

Watch a play performed by ten young refugee men, telling versions of their own stories.

Following the sell-out success and Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award nomination for Dear Home Office, Phosphoros Theatre has created a sequel.

The new play is performed by the same ten refugees. Kareem is settled in London, but the sudden arrival of his destitute brother forces him to re-navigate the system. Now 18 and independent, but with no refugee status, Elgi tries to stay optimistic despite the stalling of his university prospects. Failed asylum seeker Akram embarks on a stressful appeal, until he makes a chance connection that might just be the thing that saves him. Stardom beckons for Filmon as he is courted by TV producers – but is his face ‘refugee enough’?

Dear Home Office 2: Still Pending explores stories of coming-of-age in extreme and challenging circumstances through the company’s signature blend of comedy, raw talent and celebration.

Performances are:

24th June – 19:00

25th June – 14:00 & 18:00
