Mark Thomas - Showtime from the Frontline

Thu 22 Feb 2018

Dodging cultural and literal bullets, Israeli incursions and religion, Mark Thomas and his team set out to run a comedy club for two nights in the Palestinian city of Jenin. Only to find it’s not so simple to celebrate freedom of speech in a place with so little freedom.

Jenin refugee camp, home to Jenin Freedom Theatre and to people with a wealth of stories to tell. Mark tells this story alongside two of its actors and aspiring comics Faisal Abualheja and Alaa Shehada. A story about being yourself in a place that wants to put you in a box.

With Faisal Abualheja and Alaa Shehada  | Directed by Joe Douglas

Volcano is delighted to welcome Mark Thomas back to Swansea, following his sold-out performance of A Show that Gambles on the Future at the Troublemakers' Festival in July 2017. We strongly recommend booking in advance for this performance.

Full Price £20.00 | Concessions £15.00


Presented by Lakin McCarthy in association with Theatre Royal Stratford East
