HOME? curated by actor and refugee-child Noma Dumezweni, brings together global voices, stories and experiences to mark Refugee Week 2021 (14–20 Jun) across three new commissions, created in collaboration with refugee artists.

The series of world premiere monologues will celebrate and recognise those who have sought safety from their homes, their place within our collective community and the journey that it took to get there.

The monologues are:

Now I’m Gonna Get Paid, written by Dina Nayeri and performed by Betsabeh Emran

The Displaced, written by Viet Thanh Nguyen and performed by Elizabeth ChanTaheen ModakJohn Pfumojena and Michael Phong Le

Then and Now, written by Natasha Walter and performed by Harriet Walter

Please see our trigger warnings and age guidance page for more information on each monologue.

One Voice: Solo Performances are funded by the TS Eliot Estate
