What do you think of when you hear the word ‘refugee’? Using the real life stories from diverse refugee groups, Suspended Lives is a drama which breaks away from stereotypes and brings forth a multiplicity of refugee voices. What happens when refugees become the ‘object’ of a play? …when the interpreters misinterpret? …when the child does not go to school? …when the refugee does not fit the stereotype?

Directed by Karen Tomlin. Written by Erene Kaptani and Julia Munrow. Devising team: Ruth Frances, Devrim Incedal, Erene Kaptani, Simeon Moore, Julia Munrow, Redley Silva and Andrea Ughetto. plus stories from the Kurdish Community Centre, Somali Women Advice Network, Shpresa Albanian speaking group and Shoreditch Trust peer education group.
