About the show?
Compiled from real life interviews with asylum seekers and refugees living in the North of England, TO WALK IN YOUR SHOES explores the side without a voice. With stories from Syria, Iran, Pakistan, Eritrea and recounting their experiences living in the UK, the play explores the strength and resilience of the human spirit and challenges the myths and untruths perpetuated by the media. The play was developed back in 2013 alongside your charity and the Boaz Trust in Manchester.
