MA Theatre Lab graduate Jeffrey Ho is currently in rehearsals for Artemis Theatre Company's Rights of Passage, which tours the UK from May.
The verbatim theatre work focuses on gay and lesbian asylum seekers, encompassing real-life stories of men and women forced to flee their homelands for fear of persecution. Written by Claire Summerskill, the show premieres at the Chelsea Theatre on 11 May before continuing on tour to venues including Sheffield, Salford, Enfield, Norwich and Liverpool, where it closes on 17 June. Jeffrey plays the lead role of Izzuddin, a Muslim asylum seeker facing persecution who is trying to secure refugee status in the UK.
Jeffrey Ho studied on RADA's MA Theatre Lab course in 2014-15 and made his film debut in Queen, the award-winning Bollywood hit. His theatre and cabaret credits include As You Like It (White Bear Theatre) and Becoming The Night (The Box, Soho). He has recently finished filming in ITV's revival of Cold Feet, as new character Joe.
