Performer Alex Jarrett is taking on a tough role this winter. The young actor tells the story of a teenager sold into marriage in Ailia’s one-woman drama AISHA. In our new interview she tells us about coping with the emotions of the story.
“A beautifully told story of nightmarish proportions” is a tremendous description of AILIA’s harrowing child-marriage drama AISHA, which has impressed reviewers during its mini-tour of London.
“Tour de force”, “powerful”, “captivating” and “tremendously important” are just a few of the ways audiences have described child-marriage drama AISHA. Written, directed and produced by AJ, the hard-hitting play is already drawing plaudits after only a couple of performances.
Child-marriage drama AISHA, which plays at a trio of London venues this winter, does not shy away from the harrowing realities of a horrendous situation. Neither do the two short trailers created by its writer, director and producer AJ. Have a watch – be warned, they are disturbing
AJ, the young playwright, director and producer of AISHA, is not afraid of speaking his mind. He’s unafraid of battling the status quo, butting heads with convention or airing his truth. This all makes for a brilliant no-holds-barred interview when we spoke about the return of his drama about child marriage.
Hard-hitting drama, AISHA, which explores the taboo subject of child marriage in the UK, returns to the London stage this winter. Created by theatre company Ailia, the pertinent play runs from 3 to 8 December 2018 at Old Red Lion Theatre, 9 to 10 December at King’s Head Theatre and 4 to 5 January 2019 at Tristan Bates Theatre.
