Charting a childhood in 90’s Devon, shifting political landscapes and global refugee crisis, Joe Sellman-Leava uses comedy, storytelling and spoken word. Using humour and honesty, Labels offers a human story from multicultural Britain. Expect paper planes, racist romances and lots of sticky labels!

The show is touring internationally after an award-winning run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe and has evolved during touring, responding to rapidly changing events such as a worsening refugee crisis, the EU referendum and the election of Donald Trump.
