A verbatim piece of theatre about migrant workers and belonging, set against the backdrop of the annual strawberry harvest.

Strawberries are big business and this production goes behind-the-scenes to find out how British growers manage to keep our favourite summer fruit on the supermarket shelves. Strawberry Fields was a drama-documentary that used the words and stories of the people directly involved to reveal the environmental and social costs of industrialised farming, from the perspective of farmers, politicians, local residents, migrant workers and supermarket shoppers: it’s moving, funny and deadly serious.
