The show We Meet In Paradise will be performed outside The Forum in Norwich on Wednesday and Thursday evening as part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival.

Created by Berlin-based TheatreFragile, the show aims to bring unheard voices to the fore and will have real stories of people who have recently moved to Norfolk at its heart.

After the performance there will be a short installation and the audience will have the chance to listen to conversations between TheatreFragile and refugees and support workers from Norfolk.

TheatreFragile previously performed different versions of the show in Germany and France.
