Waiting for the Ship to Sail - Chickenshed

Waiting for the Ship to Sail

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

CHICKENSHED’S new spring show, Waiting for the Ship to Sail, runs at Chickenshed Chase Side from Thursday, March 12 to Saturday, March 28, 2020.

Waiting for the Ship to Sail is an artistic response to the urgent and pressing questions of global migration, and investigates the concepts of national and personal identity.

We find ourselves in a world where the building of walls – both in reality and figuratively – places ever more barriers between people who have more in common than it might at first appear.

This powerful new musical and dance production will offer new perspectives on the forces driving both individual and mass migration, as well as telling the story of families directly affected.

Thrillingly told with the urgency of youthful voices, this promises to be an unforgettable piece, very much in the style of What’s On Stage 2019 Offie award-winning Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow.

Waiting for the Ship to Sail is suitable for ages 12+.

Tickets: £5 – £20. FiverLive ages 13-25 all tickets £5 (subject to availability). To book, call the box office on 020 8292 9222, email: or visit

Times: 7pm, with Saturday matinees at 3pm.

monolog 3 continues at Chickenshed until February 22, 2020.
