More Information on Freedom Project
‘Time passes like treacle over oranges right now and not like water over rocks.’
The Small One has a family, but it’s not his family. He has a home, but it’s not his home.
The Big One has just arrived, placed in the room with another ‘brown face’ but this is not the face of his brother, it is the face of his enemy.
When you have experienced war, you pick your battles. They roll over and go to sleep.
Freedom Project brings together the UK’s first two Theatres of Sanctuary. Written with unaccompanied child refugees and asylum seekers living in London and Leeds, this poignant story welcomes you to explore what it means to be free in this country.
A Leeds Playhouse and Young Vic Taking Part co-production
Cast & Credits
By Luke Barnes / Original Concept by Alexander Ferris and Rob Lehmann / Directed by Alexander Ferris and Rachael Nanyonjo /
A signed performance is the usual full production using either the creative use of sign integrated into the performance or a British Sign Language Interpreter on stage interpreting the show for D/deaf attendees.Audio Described
Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.Relaxed Performance
A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.Dementia-Friendly Performance
Dementia friendly performances are for all audiences. The theatre experience is enhanced for people living with dementia and their supporters, with adaptations to front of house service, the show and pre-show information packs. Additional dementia-aware staff, quiet spaces, clear signage and visual markers, sound and lighting adjustments and flexible seating options all help to create a supportive, shared experience.Sing Along

Parent & Baby Performance
A Parent and Baby performance enables parents to attend the theatre with their baby (under 12 months). We make small adaptations to the lighting and sound effects, including keeping the auditorium lights slightly raised. The seating is unallocated and there is a relaxed attitude to noise.
*A transaction fee of £2.50 will be applied to all phone and internet bookings.
