Shining a Light on State Sanctioned Torture through Story, Song and Poem. Lasting 65 minutes in total, Feeding the Darkness takes its title from the words of James Naylor and is presented as a series of ‘miniseries’ (monologues, duologues and poems) written from extensive research into state-sanctioned torture - and hopefully challenging our ignorance and avoidance of this disturbing aspect of humanity. This production takes place as part of Yarl’s Wood Befriender’s Annual Meeting, and everyone is also welcome to attend the meeting before to find out more about the work they have done over the past year for the women detained indefinitely in Yarl’s Wood IRC. Instead of purchasing tickets, we will be asking for donations on the door. Suggested donation £5.
Date: Monday 23rd September 2019.
