Casa-based theatre group Burjesta hold a one-night only event this week in support of Merseyside Asbestos Victim Support Group.
The Real Monster Revealed is described as: “A tale of industrial pollution, the appropriation of science for profit; the continuing battle to rid the world of asbestos and the exploitation of workers worldwide.”
Taking place at the Casa on Hope Street on Thursday (July 4) at 7pm, it marks the start of the city’s acknowledgement of Action Mesothelioma Day on Friday. Events will be taking place at Liverpool Town Hall between 11am and 3pm, and the hall will be open to the public.
The aim of the day is to raise awareness about mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos, and to raise funds for further research into it.
As part of events on July 5, at 12 noon there will be a release of doves from outside the Town Hall at Exchange Flags, with doves sponsored in honour of those who have been victim to the disease. Burjesta Theatre will also be doing a 15 minute extract from The Real Monsters Revealed at 12.30pm.
