Create a film to raise awareness of the plight of refugees for IRC and Shakespeare’s Globe.


Shakespeare’s Globe wanted to utilise its amazing theatre on the banks of river Thames but we had minimal time to shoot, avoiding on stage productions, rehearsals, and tours.


We wanted to maximise the creative opportunity of working at such an iconic theatre. We sourced an extract, called ‘The Stranger’s Case’, from the historic play ‘Sir Thomas More’.

Written by William Shakespeare 400 years ago, the script included one of the earliest and most impassioned defences of a compassionate refugee policy. For World Refugee Day we brought it to life on stage and on film, casting actors and refugees to perform the prose.


1.2m organic views of the film.
