Race Today - 6 short plays
I wasn't able to get up and out to the theatre this month because of a hectic schedule, and being in rehearsals myself!
Performing in Race Today with New Slang productions at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre - I was in 5 out of the 6 plays. The plays were each 15 minutes long, and the project asked writers of colour to responded to the 1970's Race Today magazine.
Watch Tian Glasgow the director and founder of New Slang Productions explain his creation here:
I do have to give a massive #shoutout to Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu for his creation of the Rehabilitation of Allegra Kadeem ( a short play that I am super excited to see at full length). The Rehabilitation of Allegra Kadeem explored the fractured, but colourful mind of Allegra - a 30 year old ex prisoner who is dealing with and recovering from the effects of child abuse and drugs. His writing has this poetic, unique ability to illustrate bold characters, important themes - with a backdrop of vibrant, grime music playing in London.
Catch Tristan at Battersea Arts Centre this June for his return of Sweet Like Chocolate Boy to get a feel of what I mean!
