Queens of Syria, The Gillian Lynne Theatre formerly known as the New London
Following a sold out season at the Young Vic, Queens of Syria comes to the New London Theatre for a unique gala performance. This will be a life-changing opportunity for the refugees themselves, and an eye-opening experience for British audiences who will hear first-hand the harsh realities of life as a refugee.
Performed by an all-female cast of Syrian refugees, the production skilfully amalgamates the women’s own narratives of bitter exile and ferocious war into the ancient Greek text. Footage from the documentary is fused with the stage play for the first time to create a powerful, extraordinary and unique piece of theatre.
