Free to Stay: An Immersive Theatre Production for Refugee Week 2016


The Law Of… bringing issues of statelessness closer to home

Simpson Millar Solicitors are excited to be working with Interplay Theatre and Displace Yourself Theatre to bring the theatre production Free to Stay to Leeds as part of Refugee Week 2016.

Refugee Week 2016

Free to Stay is an immersive physical theatre production identifying issues on statelessness and nationality – it's about the experiences of communities who have gone through this and still do to this day.

A Personal Insight

The theatre group have invested time working closely with individuals experiencing statelessness and issues with nationality, and continue to work with charities such as the British Red Cross to gain a stronger insight.

Organising the event has also been important to us at Simpson Millar – our dedicated immigration team handles some of the most complex immigration cases and sees first-hand the devastating impact these issues have.

Emma Brooksbank is Head of Immigration at our Leeds office, she comments;

"We're delighted to be organising Free to Stay and hope that it helps people gain a much stronger insight into what it's like to be a refugee."

"Refugee Week promotes integration and understanding through arts and cultural events – we're pleased to be bringing this to Leeds at the Interplay theatre, a new creative community space."

When and Where

The performance is at 7.30pm on the 30th June 2016 at the Interplay Theatre, Armley Ridge Road, Armley, Leeds, LS12 3LE.

The production will be around an hour and tickets to the event are entirely free.

Get your Free to Stay tickets and add the event to your calendar. We look forward to seeing you there!
