About: Sleeper

Following a hugely successful run in Edinburgh 2017 Anima Theatre Company’s, The Sleeper, transfers to The Space.
On an overnight train somewhere through Europe, Karina, a British writer, naively reports a refugee hiding in her bunk. Forever connected by this simple action, these two women are played and replayed in the mind of a writer who examines the stories we tell each other and how we choose to tell them.
Weaving together the real testimony of Syrian refugees and the personal experience of writer Henry C Krempels, this innovative new play draws from his unusual story commissioned by Vice Magazine at the height of the immigration crisis.

Reviews

Praise for Sleeper:
An exceptional piece of theatre-making. Powerful, understated, subtle
The Scotsman
The best thing I saw in Edinburgh
The London Review of Books
Poignant, claustrophobic, hard-hitting.
Critically Speaking
Stellar performances. A thought provoking study of people, belonging and the absence of place.
Broadway Baby
A neat distillation of the immigration crisis
FestMag
