Cassandra Hercules and Serin Ibrahim star in Hannah and Hanna in John Retallack‘s play about refugees in Margate., which first played back in 2001 and seems as relevant as ever today. “Having fled her own country, Hanna, 16, from Kosovo meets Hannah, 16, from Margate. Can a shared love of karaoke bring about an unlikely friendship or will the racist tensions of small town Britain prevail?” Paul Levy talks to the performers and also manages to pull in director, James Haddrell from Greenwich Theatre. The interview covers a lot of fascinating ground. How do the performers get into the zone of this intense two-hander? How will the show hit the ground running at the Edinburgh Fringe?
