Fresh off the boat: An evening of two one-act plays about immigration.


A Border Story

When Brian, who is from the UK, and his American wife are refused their UK marriage visa, they must move to another EU country in order to return to England on a European Economic Area Family Permit. This is a completely autobiographical (and slightly surreal) account of Paradigm's Artistic Directors own visa nightmare.

A play written by Sarah Pitard, whose experiences with the Surinder Singh/EEA route were featured on Newsnight : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23029195
