‘We want social housing, not social cleansing.’
Facing rocketing rents and forced relocation, 29 single mothers united to confront Newham Council’s gentrification of their hometown.
From the streets of Newham to the Houses of Parliament, this bold and pertinent piece of documentary theatre, adapted from the real-life stories, is a truthful retelling of the Focus E15 Campaign, Britain’s housing crisis and how one group of women refused to be marginalised.
