Refugees and asylum seekers will share their true life stories with theatre audiences in Queensland.
Called The Village, the play immerses viewers in the lives of people from across the world who now call Australia home.
Joyce Taylor arrived in Australia after spending nine years in a Guinean refugee camp after leaving Liberia.
"I've always enjoyed sharing my story. People go to therapy, people do things, but telling my story gives me an extra peace," Joyce says.
Starring alongside Joyce is Mohammad Akram, an asylum seeker from Pakistan.
He hopes that the play can help people gain an insight into the issues refugees face.
"The only way that you can bring a change in the conversation and the narrative around asylum seekers is to engage with the public."
They share their stories with Australia Wide's Allyson Horn.
