REVIEW BY JONATHAN STRAUSS
The presentation by the Leicester Haymarket Theatre of its
one-woman show, The Bogus Woman, should be a welcome part
of the Adelaide Fringe in 2006.
When I saw this play performed in London five years ago, it
powerfully captured many facets of the experience of a
refugee: the decision to flee and the difficulties of flight, the actions of immigration authorities and detention camp guards and management, the legal quagmire refugees face, and
refugees' vulnerability when living without civil
rights. The setting is the refugee detention camp at
Campsfield in England.
