    Set in a not too implausible future where crying is just one more type of labour that can be outsourced to a cheap migrant workforce, CRY FOR ME draws on Romanian traditions of wailing. Babele bocitoare (buh-beh-leh bow-chi-twa-reh) are Romanian professional mourners: older women who go to funerals to cry for the deceased and their family. When all Romanians leave Romania in search of work elsewhere, two babe (buh-beh), Baba Luţa and Baba Deea, come to London in search of clients. 

    Almost a year on from the work-in-progress sharing as part of Calm Down Dear Festival, CRY FOR ME is back for three nights. And this time, they’re bringing friends. 

    CRY FOR ME CRIES WITH FRIENDS is a direct response to what is happening in the world and Britain’s complicity. 

    Our friends are artists, academics, activists and clowns.

    It’ll be business as usual: in times of crisis, the babe (buh-beh) are here to cry for YOU. 

    All profits will go towards Workers for a Free Palestine, a grassroots collective of workers and trade unionists in Britain who want to organise for a free Palestine. 

    Generously supported by POMOC, a grassroots organisation that uses art and activism to spur political awareness & social change. 

    Supported by Odd Eyes Theatre, BÉZNĂTheatre, Camden People's Theatre & Counterpoints Arts.
