Presented by Worklight Theatre
Fresh from winning a Fringe First at Edinburgh 2015, this intimate new show from Worklight Theatre draws on writer/performer Joe Sellman-Leava’s experiences of mixed heritage and racism. Shortlisted for the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award, Labels examines the way we use words, the line between curiosity and fear, and the rise of anti-immigration rhetoric. Amid the cacophony of statistics and soundbites that surround the immigration debate, Labels offers an honest, human story about multicultural Britain. After RADAR, Labels transfers to the Adelaide Fringe in 2016 having won the annual Holden Theatres Award.
