About us

This is what she would have said, if only we’d let her.
An impassioned call to arms, a play and a campaign: ‘TANJA’ is a dramatic exploration of immigration detention centres, starring Emily Ntshangase-Wood, a former Yarl’s Wood detainee.
Central to the play are the lived experiences of asylum seekers and refugees across the world. ‘TANJA’ (the pseudonym used in the British press in reference to asylum seekers speaking out against abuses within the system) takes audiences inside an immigration detention centre whilst examining and challenging the UK’s position in the ‘Refugee Crisis.’
SBC Theatre are the UK's first Theatre Company of Sanctuary and are Associate Artists at Cast, Doncaster.

Map & Directions

Road Directions

Walking:
Turn left from the main entrance of the station and continue past the Royal York Hotel, straight over the cross roads. Follow the road under the city walls, then turn left and over Lendal Bridge. You will see the Minster in front of you as you pass the York Museum Gardens on the left. At the crossroads turn left and York Theatre Royal is in front of you on the right hand side of the road. The De Grey Rooms is immediately adjacent.

Driving:
The theatre is approximately 40 minutes' drive from Harrogate, 45 minutes from Leeds (city centre), 1hr from Hull and 30 minutes from junction 45 of the A1(M). There are a number of car parks close to the theatre, but space can be limited so please allow enough time to park and walk in. The city centre car parks can be expensive, so you may want to use York's Park & Ride scheme for a day visit.

Public transport:
York Theatre Royal is situated in the heart of York, in the shadow of York Minster. York Railway Station is just 10 minutes' walk away, giving excellent connections to the rest of the UK. A number of local bus services stop directly outside the theatre including numbers 1, 2, 5, 5A, 6, 19, 29, 30, 31, 31X, 40, 56, 58, 812 and 884.
