Presented by SBC Theatre


This is what she would have said, if only we’d let her.

An impassioned call to arms, a play and a campaign: Tanja is a dramatic exploration of immigration detention centres, starring Emily Ntshangase-Wood, a former Yarl’s Wood detainee.

SBC Theatre are the UK’s first Theatre Company of Sanctuary and are Associate Artists at Cast, Doncaster. Tanja returns to CPT after a sell-out run in Autumn 2016.

Politically the piece is doing something remarkable” – British Theatre Guide
“Should be mandatory viewing” – The Reviews Hub
“A story with real emotive power that leaves one questioning our government’s policies towards asylum seekers. Unquestionably great theatre – ★★★★” Forge Press



About the company

Stand and Be Counted Theatre is a collaboration between theatre maker Hannah Butterfield, writer and performer Rosie MacPherson and producer John Tomlinson. In 2016, SBC Theatre became the first ‘Theatre Company of Sanctuary’ following the national tour of Tanja – a contemporary theatre work and social campaign to end the detention of vulnerable asylum seekers in Immigration Removal Centres.
