Boxman by Daniel Keene
We were children. We had homes. But they were lost. Flugelman Productions with StoneCrabs Theatre presents this intimate and deeply moving one-man play by Australian playwright Daniel Keene, directed by Edwina Strobl.
There are more than 60 million displaced people on our planet... people who have no home.
Flugelman Productions present the London premiere of Boxman at Blue Elephant Theatre. Boxman is by Australian playwright Daniel Keene and follows a
homeless refugee Ringo. He is a survivor, a child soldier displaced from his homeland, sheltering in a cardboard box in an inner city park. He lives in plain sight but is invisible to the city around him. Inside his makeshift home Ringo lives a life rich with stories and songs of a childhood far away, a family tragically lost and the complicated promise of a new beginning.
Flugelman Productions is taking this opportunity to raise awareness and money for Refugee Council. Who work with refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK, offering practical support and advice throughout their journey in the UK. Refugee Council have been helping refugees for more than 60 years and have a thorough understanding of the difficulties facing people arriving in the UK, having fled war, rape, torture and with unimaginable stories to tell. Many refugees have lost everything and their lives will never return to normal. The help the Refugee Council offer is invaluable to help refugees to rebuild their lives.
