About Status

We all have a nationality. Or almost all of us. Status is a show about someone who doesn't want his any more. About running away from the national story you're given. About who is responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you give it up. A globe-spanning journey of attempted escape, with songs along the way. '… the words are eloquent, the music essential and powerful, and the performance full of a brilliant, prowling precision…' Scotsman Fringe First Award Winner 2018 **** Guardian ****Time Out **** The Scotsman **** The Stage

Written by Chris Thorpe
Directed by Rachel Chavkin

Commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre, Warwick Arts Centre and Les Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg.

Supported by the British Council, Goethe-Institut London, the Collaborative Touring Network and using public funding by the national lottery through Arts Council England.

Note: Contains strong language

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Status are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
