Seemia Theatre presents

Evros | The Crossing River

Wed 19 Jun, 7:30pm at Copper Auditorium

Tickets: Pay What You Can (£20-£1)

Age: 12+

After winning Summerhall’s Lustrum Award 2018 at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and being featured on BBC World Service, Seemia Theatre’s spellbinding Evros | The Crossing River comes to Square Chapel as part of Refugee Week 2019.


Follow Doaa who dreams of a better life amongst a backdrop of war, terror and enduring love. The boy from the local garden centre, whose tranquil existence amongst the flowers is torn apart. A mother who cannot keep her children safe.

This immersive experience envelopes you into the current refugee crisis. Evros | The Crossing River explodes with Seemia’s unique blend of storytelling, musicality and physical theatre.

Devised with generous support from Arcola Theatre as part of the LAB for BAMER artists, Theatre Deli and Arts Council England.
