Labels (Worklight Theatre)

By | Published on Friday 28 August 2015


An honest, brave story that makes us redefine the labels we use to identify ourselves and others. Worklight Theatre presents this fantastic, Fringe First winning show at a crucial time, when the immigration debate is so rife, and the lines between valued migrants and illegal immigrants are blurred. Writer and performer Joe Sellman-Leava explores his own journey of growing up with dual heritage, and reflects on political and celebrity figures who address immigration insensitively. ‘Labels’ is a very special show – inclusive, interactive and personal. I was even fortunate enough to witness a beautiful, surprise proposal by the actor’s brother at the end of the show. If you are lucky enough to get a ticket, you can label yourself a winner.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 31 Aug.
