Folkestone Quaker Meeting is bringing a hard-hitting theatre production about the UK’s asylum system to Folkestone, to mark National Quaker Week (30 September - 8 October 2017). Based on the personal testimonies of people who have sought asylum, ‘Asylum Monologues’ explores what it really means to be displaced in the UK.

Asylum Monologues is a production of Iceandfire, a professional theatre company and registered charity, which explores human rights stories through performance. Christine Bacon, artistic director of Iceandfire Theatre and co-author of Asylum Monologues, said; “The Asylum Monologues aims to give voice to people whose basic human rights have been denied.” All are most welcome to attend this event and to find out more about the refugee crisis in our area. Kent Refugee Action Network is an independent charity supporting young unaccompanied asylum seekers and refugees.
