The Scar Test Play Hannah Khalil

The Scar Test (Theatre): The latest from award-winning Palestinian-Irish playwright Hannah Khalil, this is a strong piece of theatre based on verbatim interviews that explore life inside Yarl’s Wood Detention Centre, a place in which those seeking safe haven are thrown into a dark world under lock and key where their lives are regulated, privacy is non-existent and where every detainee has a story to tell. With this, Khalil aims to alert audiences to the horrors of the immigration system and how the females held there are strong and inspiring human beings who deserve better than indefinite detention. Taking place with some scheduled post-show discussions from 5-22 July, 2017 at Soho Theatre, 21 Dean Street, London W1D 3NE.
