What does it mean to be housed in temporary accommodation? How do you end up there? And once you’re there, how ‘temporary’ is it really?
We’re in the midst of a housing crisis. We know there’s not enough social or affordable housing to go round. We know there’s a rise in evictions, of communities being displaced. But what is the human cost?
In June of 2017 published figures recorded over 77,000 households in temporary accommodation with over 120,000 children spending their Christmas in temporary accommodation.
TEMPORARY explores the social and political reasons for the surge in households in temporary accommodation, why women (single mothers especially) are particularly at risk of ‘social cleansing’ in London and the emotional effects for women and children in temporary accommodation.
Using their trademark mix of hard hitting facts, humour and verbatim, and fresh off the back of acclaimed show, MUVVAHOOD, writer/performer Libby Liburd and director Julie Addy present their newest piece of powerhouse political feminist theatre with heart.
