HACKNEY Empire is transformed into a trip down the Amazon in a play exploring the world through people's journeys.

Five actors play travellers whose lives 'connect' as they discover the world around them in Strangers, which opens on St George's Day on Wednesday, April 23.

The play is inspired by real conversations experienced by Indian writer and director Ninaz Khodaiji during her own travels in South America.

It is a combination of speech, verse, emails and telephone conversations about the journeys that people make and the cities that inspire them to wander.

Sound effects and set design are used to mix real life and imagination.

Strangers runs until May 24 at the Hackney Empire in Mare-street. Tickets: £12. Box office: 020-8985 242, or online:
