Set up by the Good Chance Theatre - the theatre which opened in the 'jungle' in Calais for refugees - the night was organised to raise awareness of the unaccompanied children of Calais.
During the event, actors including Mulligan, Stevenson and West read the entirety of the Dublin III Regulation, which provides the legal basis for establishing the criteria for determining the country responsible for reviewing asylum applications.
As well as the reading, artist Sue Partridge also created life size cardboard cut outs of people in the room. It was an enactment of Partridge's artwork The Paper People Project where the artist hung 291 lifesize cut outs which represented the unaccompanied children of Calais.
Artistic directors of Good Chance Theatre Joe Robertson and Joe Murphy held a Q&A session with Stevenson about the plight of children in the camp in Calais and the work that Citizens UK is doing to help them.
