Some Other Mother – Half price theatre at Paisley Arts Centre

Some Other Mother – Half price theatre at Paisley Arts Centre

Part of Refugee Week Scotland, Some Other Mother is just one event taking place from 17 – 23 June that celebrates the diversity of Scottish culture and raises awareness of refugee issues. 

Some Other Mother is a new play by AJ Taudevin produced in association with The Tron, the Scottish Refugee Council and support from Stellar Quines. Set high up in a Glasgow tower block, ten-year old Star and her mother await the outcome of their claim for asylum. As Mama’s mind fragments under the pressure of their unknown future, Star constructs a poetic and fantastical world of her own. Some Other Mother is a story of loss and survival which explores the traumatising impact of the asylum system, regardless of the outcome.

Acclaimed playwright, AJ Taudevin was inspired to create new play, Some Other Mother after working closely with refugees and asylum seekers in and around Glasgow. It is perhaps fitting then, that Some Other Mother is touring a number of Scottish theatres during Refugee Week 2013, a festival that celebrates diversity and raises awareness of refugee issues.
