Roadkill: one of the top 5 plays of the year.

Roadkill, a heartwrenching play telling the story of a trafficked child,  has wound up its sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe with a clutch of awards and plans to tour in the UK and beyond.

The site specific work, directed by Cora Bissett and supported by Scottish Refugee Council, won a total of seven awards including a Herald Angel, the Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award, and the Edinburgh International Festival Fringe Prize.

Roadkill premiered during a sell-out run at Refugee Week Scotland 2010 and has not only attracted rave reviews but helped to raise awareness of the reality of trafficking in Scotland.

It will be back at the Tron in November for another sell-out run. Tickets are sold out, but you can contact the Tron to join the waiting list. Scottish Refugee Council, which supports Roadkill, is putting on an event about human trafficking with Cora Bissett at the Tron in November. More details are available on our events calendar.

Belinda McElhinney, Scottish Refugee Council's Arts and Cultural Affairs Officer, said, "It is an amazing piece of theatre that raises awareness about the issues of trafficking and makes people realise it not only happens miles away but also on our doorstep."
