The Space Between Us
The Space Between Us invites audiences into a world that is full of conflict, love and hope.
The North East of England is in the grip of a storm on a biblical scale. Three months of rain fall in one day, roads are closed, rivers are bursting their banks and the region is submerged under water. Blown from four corners of the earth, four women seek sanctuary, security and refuge. However, all is not as it should be and the women find themselves in a battle not only with the rising tide and with each other, but with humanity itself.
116 women directly informed the play including Arabic women, Czech/Roma women and Czech/Roma and Slovak/Roma young women, British Travellers both living on sites and in houses and women who have been refused asylum and are now destitute and in fear of deportation, mainly from countries within Africa.
