This exciting new piece of theatre by award-winning Portuguese film and theatre director Marco Martins is inspired by the stories of Portuguese immigrants who began arriving in Great Yarmouth in the mid-2000s.
Now, more than 10,000 Portuguese have made Great Yarmouth their home, significantly changing the face of the town. Relating their personal stories, Provisional Figures gives voice to this community, their motivations for leaving their homeland, their quest for a new identity and the challenges and successes that follow.
The show has been created in Great Yarmouth over the last year, devised in collaboration with a community cast from all nationalities and backgrounds, to create a moving piece of theatre woven through with deeply personal stories.
These human experiences invite audiences to reflect on the profound social changes brought about by the recent arrival of European migrants to the town and explores notions of our British and European identities at this particularly complex time in political history.
