Tish (Layne) and Fonny (James) are friends since childhood who grow up to realise that they’re soulmates, but then Fonny gets arrested and charged with rape.

Stories of Sanctuary

Following the success of the launch last year, the Stories of Sanctuary community project returns to the North East! An emotive and poignant show of original songs written and performed by those with experience of seeking sanctuary, linking the past with the present. Drawing on Durham’s rich history of offering sanctuary – from the arrival of an exiled monastic community seeking sanctuary from the Vikings to modern stories of fleeing the civil war in Syria – Stories of Sanctuary warmly invites you into the project that inspired infectious friendships as well as deeply beautiful songs.

Stories of Sanctuary is made up of the Sanctuary Seekers Choir, featuring the National Syrian Orchestra’s Raghad Haddad along with the project’s curator and singer-songwriter Sam Slatcher. The project was rated 9/10 at its sold-out premiere at Durham Cathedral in October 2018 and the choir performed an exclusive set in the Houses of Parliament with partner organisation City of Sanctuary in November 2018.

“Timely, emotional and beautiful” (Sean Cooney, The Young’uns)

“Stories of Sanctuary speaks loudly of hope in the midst of difficulty and hardship, light in the midst of dark and dangerous times. As you journey with Sam and his co-collaborators through Stories of Sanctuary you will experience great beauty, peace and musical depth” (Gareth Davies-Jones)
