    Dear Fringebiscuit Team,

    I am writing on behalf Theatre for Justice. We are an emerging young theatre company comprised of students and recent graduates from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.

    I would love to invite you to review our Edinburgh Fringe show ‘Still here’. It is a site specific new verbatim play based on the experiences of an Eritrean refugee and the British girl who interviewed him.

    Our writer Rachel Partington went to the Calais Jungle in this December and interviewed a man she met in the Eritrean church. We are extremely passionate about this project and are trying to spread awareness for refugees in Calais, fleeing from persecution in their own countries. We have been working with two refugees charities and all the proceeds from the show will go to them.

    The show is running from the 5th to the 24th of August (not the 13th) at 7.15 pm 9.00pm on Thursday the 18th) at Venue 91, Zoo at St. Mary’s South Lawn.
    We have been Selected for the Top 49+3 and have also been nominated for an amnesty international award.

    As a graduating director from the Bristol Old Vic it would be invaluable to me, to get some feedback on the show and to see how it is received by its audience.

    Here is a link to the Shows Promo Video below. I have also pasted the Press release. Let me know if I can get you a comp for the show or alternatively you can contact Zoo Directly. you can contact me on sarah.bradley@oldvic.ac.uk

    Press Release:

    STILL HERE – SITE SPECIFIC THEATRE DOCUMENTING THE PLIGHT OF A CALAIS REFUGEE COMES TO EDINBURGH

    A new verbatim play based on the experiences of an Eritrean refugee.

    Taken from an interview conducted in the Calais refugee camp during December 2015, STILL HERE documents the journey of a man as he fled persecution, and the British girl who interviewed him.

    STILL HERE plays in The Tent – a site specific space drawing inspiration from the Calais camp. The Tent is situated at an exciting new space – ZOO @St Mary’s South lawn.

    “On the 21 st December I visited The Jungle. There we met a few of the unsung heroes – refugees who ran a church in the camp. I met a man there who told me his story and I made a promise that day to bring his story back.”

    Playwright Rachel Partington uses verbatim and spoken word to bring the account of her experience in Calais vividly to life. Cast and creatives from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School present this powerful piece of new work.

    “If you have the media – please tell to all the people of nation about my country; Is very important.”
