A s a part of A Moment’s Peace Theatre Company’s event, Border Control, Alex performed an excerpt from a new solo piece he is writing. Titled Flags, the monologue brings together several personal stories from the last 100 years to look at what nationality means and who gets to define our national identity.
The sell-out run of Risk concluded last night to a great audience response. See the five star audience review blog about the “genius” production here.

It was shown last night at Summerhall’s Festival Club on the Fringe.

The play also made the final shortlists for the Holden Street Theatres Award, the Brighton Fringe Award, and the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award.
