As part of Refugee Week 2017 Glasgow Meeting played host to two challenging plays. Journeymen Theatre performed a double bill: Feeding the Darkness, on state-sanctioned torture, and The Bundle, which tells the story of a woman negotiating the UK asylum system.

Both events took place at Renfield St Stephen’s Church, Bath Street, Glasgow, to whose congregation we express our thanks.
