An arts charity is set for a nation-wide week of performances based on the stories of UK migrants.

Ice&fire, which explores human rights stories through performance, will stage seven unique performances of 'Tales from the hostile environment' in the run-up to the general election on July 4.

They will begin on June 27 at the Oxford Playhouse, with tickets priced at £5.

The script focuses on previously unheard testimonies gathered from UK migrants over the past decade.

This includes a mother who became "computer mummy" to her young children after Home Office rules kept her apart from her British family for a year, and a pregnant woman reported to immigration authorities by her midwife.

Each performance will be followed by a panel discussion, involving members of the cast and migrants' rights campaigners.

Oxford-based arts consultant and trustee of ice&fire, Liz Pagett, said: "Migrants and refugees in the UK have been subjected to dehumanising treatment and increasingly draconian policies in recent years.

"Tales from the Hostile Environment distils the real-life, human cost of these policies through a powerful and moving series of testimonies."

Ice&fire co-artistic director Christine Bacon wrote the script and collected most of the testimonies.

She said: "With this script, we want to remind people what many immigrants here are facing as a result of these policies and the fight that is ahead no matter what happens on July 4."
