Heartfelt, personal, political odyssey
Worklight Theatre’s multi-award winning show returns to FRINGE WORLD after a sold-out season in 2016. Joe Sellman-Leava charts his childhood in England in the 90s, examining curiosity, shifting political landscapes, and the global refugee crisis in a funny, moving and true story about mixed heritage.
Using humour and honesty, Labels offers a human story from multicultural Britain and is touring internationally after an award-winning Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Expect paper planes, racist romances and lots of sticky labels!
Returning after sold-out seasons at FRINGE WORLD 2016 and Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016.
