In UK, new theatre project about gay refugee lives

By Paul Canning

Two Scottish based theatre workers are producing a new theatre project about gay male refugees and asylum seekers.

Sam Rowe, a director and writer, and Rachel Jury, who runs an arts company call conFAB, say that the play provisionally titled 'Hearts Unspoken' is to have it's initial run in Glasgow at The Tron Theatre 7-10 September.
"We have both worked with asylum seekers and refugees before, and care a lot about the way people are treated both in the U.K. and around the world," they say.
It is being produced in partnership with the Scottish Refugee Council, UK Refugee Council and The Tron Theatre.

The work will be a documentary based on interviews with gay male refugees and asylum seekers. Rowe is looking now at interviewing more people. If you would like to be interviewed or to find out more about the project contact Sam on or 07846 602966.

Sam has started a blog to document the progress of the project.
