Dogstar's Artistic Director Matthew Zajac went to Istanbul in March to carry out research for his new play. He met several Syrian women who are part of the city's 350,000 refugees from the Syrian war. With the assistance of an interpreter and a support worker from a local community centre set up to support the refugees, Matthew interviewed the women. Their stories will form the basis of THE SKY IS SAFE. The play is due to open on August 4th at Summerhall for a 4-week run there during this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The show will then tour Scotland for 4 weeks. More details can be found on our Upcoming Shows page.
