Theatre: Some Other Mother
by AJ Taudevin
Wednesday 19th June 7.30pm
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.
Programmed at the heart of Refugee Week Scotland, Some Other Mother is a story of loss and survival, which explores the traumatising impact of the asylum system, regardless of the outcome.
“The emotional impact is shattering and beautifully conveyed.” **** Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman.
Produced in association with The Tron, Scottish Refugee Council and supported by Stellar Quines.
Dir Tom Hooper, 157 mins)
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling
story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption-a
timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit.
Misérables is the
motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation and stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne
Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter
and Sacha Baron Cohen.
