    Based on the company's lived experiences of going through the naturalisation process, This is What Dreams Are Made Of (A declassified British survival guide) makes fun of bureaucratic systems and their ability to suck all the joy out of living in this country.

    Following two young people from Zimbabwe and Hungary - an unlikely pairing of cultural references - it explores a diverse and non-monolithic experience of immigration. It's playful and punches up, by using clowning, contemporary theatre forms, and queering of cultural mythology to empower those often silenced into ‘case workers’ notes by the home office. The show is joyful and direct, putting the audience right beside the person going through the naturalisation process, not as a distant headline but as an active participant.

    Supported by the Arcola Theatre.
