Do We Look Like Refugees?

★ Fringe First Award
Assembly @ George Street, 2010 Producer Beyond Borders Productions Director Alecky Blythe Writer Alecky Blythe

A verbatim piece created from interviews recorded in a refugee settlement in Georgia with people who lost their homes after the 2008 Georgian-Russian war. As the hope of returning to their homeland becomes an ever more distant dream, this temporary settlement is inevitably evolving into a permanent small town. Poignant and surprisingly humorous, stories of love and enterprise emerge.

'Do We Look Like Refugees?!' is the result of a workshop collaboration between the Rustaveli Theatre in Georgia, the National Theatre Studio, the British Council and Beyond Borders Productions Ltd. Subtitles.

Winner of a Fringe First, Fringe Review Outstanding Theatre Award, and The Stage Award for Acting Excellence- Best Ensemble.
