Stowaway, Platform, 19 and 20 February, 2016
Stowaway is the new show from two-time Fringe First winners and “bright young things of British Theatre” (Observer).
A Boeing 777 begins its descent towards Heathrow. The wheels unfold out of the belly of the plane. The frozen body of a stowaway is tipped out and cuts through the clear morning sky. In the car park of B&Q, Andy looks up. Something is falling out of the sky. A man crash-lands on the ground in front of him.
Stowaway is a story about a man from India who finds himself far from home and adrift from everything he knows. It is the story of an extraordinary journey in search of an impossible future. But what are the rules of telling someone’s story when they come from a world so different from our own?
Performances at 7pm Feb 19th and 2pm Feb 20th, 2016
Duration Approx. 80mins
Post Premier Discussion:
Friday 19 February, 2016
Stowaway is inspired by multiple stories of migration, asylum and refuge. Alongside its premier performance in Scotland on Friday 19th Feb, audiences will have the opportunity to hear the voice of people who have experience and expertise in the issues raised by the show. We welcome Professor Alison Phipps (Professor of Languages and Intercultural Studies at Glasgow University), Ashvin Devasundaram (researcher in cultural studies and visual arts at Heriot Watt University, Edinburgh) and Maryam Hamidi (co-founder of BAME Boost) for a post-show discussion, chaired by Fiona Sturgeon Shea of the Playwrights’ Studio Scotland.
Admission to the discussion is included in the performance ticket.
