This weekend, Ukrainian-British theatre group Molodyi Teatr will present Penetrating Europe, or Migrants Have Talent, a play that brings an absurd and comic twist to real-life stories of migrants in Europe.
Combining documentary theatre and a classic talent show format, the show centres on a group of migrants competing for a place to remain in the UK, with the final verdict decided by the public. By bringing the voices of migrants into the burning debate on immigration, Penetrating Europe sheds light on a complex issue, looking beyond sensationalist media headlines.
Molodyi Teatr will perform Penetrating Europe, or Migrants Have Talent on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 August at The Cockpit theatre, Marylebone, as part of the Camden Fringe. Get tickets here.
