'TANJA' is an impassioned call to arms, a play and a campaign. The show is a dramatic exploration of immigration detention centres, starring Emily Ntshangase-Wood, a former Yarl’s Wood detainee.
Central to this play are the lived experiences of asylum seekers and refugees across the
world. ‘TANJA’ (the pseudonym used in the British press in reference to asylum seekers
speaking out against abuses within the system) takes audiences inside an immigration
detention centre whilst examining and challenging the UK’s position in the ‘Refugee Crisis.’
Politically the piece is doing something remarkable
