Pizza Shop Heroes comes to HOME in Manchester 4–5 October hot off a week's performances at Edinburgh Fringe.

Phosphoros Theatre is now officially recognised as a Theatre of Sanctuary, three years after its company of former child asylum seekers first stepped on stage.

Set in a pizza shop, they reclaim the stories they’ve told repeatedly to social workers and courts, travelling across time and continents. From leaving their homelands of Eritrea, Albania and Afghanistan on their own as children, they explore how they got here, where they’re going and what they’ve learnt along the way.
