The Claim

The Claim at Platform Glasgow, asks what happens when your life is at stake and all you have to save it are your words.

The Claim

About The Claim

A comically absurd and quietly shattering journey to the heart of our tolerant and fair society. Who is Serge? Why is he here? What is he claiming has happened to him? And what has Willy Wonker got to do with it?

Based on the true stories of migrants caught in the most British of interview processes, The Claim asks what happens when your life is at stake and all you have to save it are your words.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Claim are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
