Stop The Boats!

Rewriting cliched narratives about migrants, refugees and boats with LegalAliens Theatre.

Artists & Associates

From Tuesday 5 March to Saturday 9 March 2024, LegalAliens in collaboration with Bedford Creative Arts will be running theatre workshops dedicated to Bedford-based migrants, refugees and asylum seekers who are interested in acting, performing and having their voices heard.

LegalAliens is a theatre company that includes migrants as artists, creatives, participants and audiences. All workshop facilitators are migrants in the UK and are experienced in working with asylum seekers.

Over the 5 days, participants will learn simple acting and performing techniques. They will be led by professional artists to create a performing ensemble and develop ideas to present a performance called ‘Stop the Boats!’ We have partnered with The Place Theatre in Bedford as the venue for the workshops and final performance.


‘Stop The Boats!’ is made possible through funding by Arts Council England.
