Nowhere to Belong: Tales of an Extravagant Stranger
Sun 29 Nov 2009 – Sun 29 Nov 2009
Sunday 29 November
7:15pm: drinks reception
For one night only – the return of Yasmin Alibhai-Brown’s poignant and impassioned one-woman show about a Ugandan in Britain.
Journalist and political commentator Yasmin Alibhai-Brown explores her life-long love of Shakespeare. Her experience of playing Juliet as a teenager in ‘60’s Uganda sent shockwaves through her family and helped shape the emotional and political landscape of her life.
All proceeds from the evening will go to the One to One Children’s Fund Expert Patient programme in Uganda and Kenya.
The programme offers an innovative solution to the problem of chronic staff shortages in HIV clinics across Africa. HIV/AIDS patients are given training to enable them to support healthcare professionals in clinics and their own communities, helping them to care for HIV-positive children in particular.

A glass of fine wine and some nibbles are included.
