Lives in Translation

Based on a series of interviews with female Somalian refugees, support workers and community organisations, Kabosh's newest production is a poignant new drama exploring how recent migrants navigate the necessary support systems through translation. How disempowering and frustrating this system can be. How dehumanising the multi-layered hierarchy of language knowledge is. How time is controlled by those it least affects.

The newest script from acclaimed playwright Rosemary Jenkinson celebrates the human survival instinct whilst not shying away from the horrors of war. It asks difficult questions about our social justice systems. It challenges individuals who have made assumptions without knowing the facts. It gives voice to our new citizens and empowers them whilst bearing witness to their stories.

Join Kabosh theatre in a rehearsed reading of their newest production, and have an oppurtunity to not only hear the new script before anyone else but also to have your say on how you think the play should develop. This is a unique chance to see behind the scenes in the creation of a new performance and to inform that process.
