Tim Cowbury’s The Claim is set to play at Northumbria University on the Friday 2nd February. This bold, imaginative play will be a real treat for theatre goers, and is set to raise awareness and also ask some big questions around the UK’s relationship with asylum seekers.

The play charts the journey of a single asylum claim and the prejudice that surrounds it. Drawing on first hand research into the refugee experience in the UK, the creative team behind the piece have conducted some impressive research and development by spending time at immigration courts, working closely with asylum seekers and refugees and working with representatives from migrant organisations. 

It all makes for an immensely relevant and critical piece of theatre.
