St. Margaret's House welcome back Actors For Human Rights by Ice&Fire Theatre with a special reading for Black History Month.

The Actors for Human Rights programme was founded in 2006 and is a network of more than 700 professional actors across the UK who are dedicated to drawing public attention to human rights concerns. They respond to requests for rehearsed readings of their documentary plays and can go anywhere at any time.

Ice&Fire explores human rights stories through performance. They put human rights at the core of everything we do to make accessible theatre for a wide range of audiences across the UK.

The reading will be followed by a Q&A Panel Discussion.

‘This was not what I expected. I was expecting some kind of inauthentic moralising verbatim theatre experience. The acting (in Asylum Monologues) was delicate, minimal, allowing the words to speak for themselves. Although we know it must go on, it’s still shocking to hear the first-hand accounts of people devoured by the heartless machine of bureaucracy. This was brave, honest, close to the bone.’ – OXFORD THEATRE REVIEW
