I WANT THE WORLD TO HEAR...
...BUT I WONDER,
WILL IT BE HEARD?"
CREATING A PLATFORM FOR SYRIAN REFUGEES TO TELL THEIR OWN STORIES THROUGH DRAMA
The Trojan Women Project has been creating joint therapeutic drama and advocacy projects for Syrian refugees in Jordan, Europe and the UK since 2013. We also make documentaries about our projects to amplify and platform the voices of Syrian refugees to be heard as widely as possible.
A BLACK COMEDY.
Our current project 'En-Scripted' is a black comedy that explores the challenges experienced by our cast of Syrian refugees during COVID-19 and beyond.
Through weekly Zoom workshops, we are developing a digital play and sketch show: written, performed, filmed and created remotely by our Syrian participants. Both the sketches and the final script will be entirely based on the lived experiences of our cast, offering an honest and darkly humourous approach to the challenges of being a refugee.
Each week, we hear both hilarious and harrowing stories, refine our sketches, and reinforce a strong sense of community and solidarity between all cast members. Beyond comedy, our work serves as a platform to amplify the voices of Syrian refugees so they can reclaim their own narrative and raise awareness.
