The Bundle – an asylum seeker’s story

Event Details

Based on the true story of a woman and her three young children, The Bundle follows Adilah’s abuse and denial of human rights in Chechnya.  Escaping her forced marriage she arrives in the UK, where she has to face the Home Office’s ‘hostile environment’ with regard to asylum seekers and refugees. The play moves from folk story to biting satire as it charts Adilah’s bid for freedom, safety and hope.

Running time 65 minutes, followed by tea and coffee.

The performance takes place at Brentford and Isleworth Quaker Meeting, Quakers Lane, London Road, Isleworth TW7 5AZ on Saturday 18th November at 19.00 and Sunday 19th November at 14.00.  Quakers Lane is up the side of the Green School.  The Meeting House is half way up Quakers Lane, on the left.
