Sajeela Kershi & Guests - 'Immigrant Diaries'
With special guests comedian Luisa Omielan, writer Shyama Perera and author Preethi Nair
“Immigration, migrants, the refugee crisis; these are hot topics dividing Britain and the rest of Europe too. How many are there? Why are they coming here? What do they want? And who exactly are these ‘bloody foreigners’ anyway?”
Sajeela’s award-winning show, Immigrant Diaries returns to the tour circuit post-Brexit/Trump and the anti-immigration/refugee rhetoric blamed for the rise in hate crimes. Irrespective of which side of the debate you sit on, this show is for all. A chance to hear some sublime true stories from a cast of performers from somewhere else. All with one thing in common; statistics don’t tell the story, people do.
