My Mind Is Free goes to Edinburgh 7-18 August 2017; (pre-view London, Waterloo East theatre 27 July)

The Rah Rah Community Theatre Company has teamed up with The Salvation Army and anti-trafficking charity, Hope For Justice, to bring its production of MY MIND IS FREE to Waterloo East Theatre in London and this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The Festival is the largest arts festival in the world so is an ideal opportunity to get the message out there and make a difference in the fight against modern day slavery! The play is previewing first at London Waterloo East Theatre on the 27th July 2017.

MY MIND IS FREE is a powerful interpretation of the degradations of human trafficking. It tells the interlinked stories of four people trafficked to and within the UK and their horrifying tales of abuse, exploitation and enslavement. The production first toured in 2015, receiving 4 and 5 star reviews. It was nominated for “Best stage play” in the Human Trafficking Foundation’s Anti-Slavery Media awards 2016 which was hosted by the Home Secretary at the House of Commons.

Alongside the production the Company will be running a series of workshops and talks for both front line workers and the public on how we, as a community, can make a change, fight this horrific crime, and spot the signs of trafficking (see below).
