Let Me Out of Hell

Let Me Out of Hell

Wednesday 28 October, 12 - 2pm
Venue: Free Word Centre

The Burmese Theatre Workshop - the UK's first ensemble of Burmese actors - presents 'Let Me Out of Hell', a performance about Burma, post Cyclone Nargis.

Burmese Theatre Workshop takes the audience back to Burma in May 2008, struggling to cope with the effects of the worst natural disaster in history, Cyclone Nargis. Travelling from the country's Golden Pagoda to the devastated Delta Region, the audience learn the stories of a victim of the cyclone and an imprisoned businessman. A foreign observer explains the remarkable reaction of the people forced - in the absence of foreign aid - to pick up the pieces themselves.

The performance starts at 12 noon, with a post-show talk at 1.15pm.

This is a free event, and all are welcome. To reserve a place, please email cat@englishpen.org
