Nine Lives – and Sir Ian McKellen!

The wonderful Sir Ian McKellen attended a special showing of Nine Lives on the 14th January, a play which started off in Sanctuary in Parliament 2014!

Nine Lives  is the story of Ishmael, who has fled from his home in Zimbabwe, where a fresh wave of homophobia threatens his life. In Leeds is the prospect of sanctuary, and of a new life among strangers. But will those strangers accept him?

There are only 4 days of the show left at the Arcola Theatre, but we are happy it has been getting the recognition it deserves!
