Description

We all have a nationality. Or almost all of us. Status is a Fringe First-winning show about someone who doesn't want his any more. About running away from the national story you're given. About who's responsible for that story and what might happen to it if you try to give it up. 'The words are eloquent, the music essential and powerful, and the performance full of brilliant, prowling precision' **** (Scotsman). **** (Guardian). **** (Time Out). **** (Stage). Part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2019.
