London Live television recently featured actor Natali Servat and director Roman Berry speaking about our latest in-house production ‘Little Did I Know’ by Doc Andersen-Bloomfield! The powerful one-woman-show is told from Yarl’s Wood Detention and Removal Centre (for Women Asylum Seekers) in England. Aaneseh recounts her horrendous and sometimes amusing journey as a teen refugee, pretending to be a boy, and all those she meets along her journey from Syria to England. The play came top 3 in The Bread & Roses Playwriting Award 2016/2017 and runs from 6th to 10th February 2018. Book Now!
With only a week of performances to go, make sure you don't miss the winner of The Bread & Roses Playwriting Award, The Black Eye Club by Phil Charles, which is also getting great reviews!
