Who are we and who are the people we meet? These rather profound questions have, in one way or another, been at the heart of Sonia Friedman’s brief Re:Emerge season at the Harold Pinter Theatre which concludes with Anna X.

Vibrant and thoughtful play J’Ouvert at the Harold Pinter Theatre is both a celebration of the carnival experience as well highlighting sexual politics and inclusivity versus cultural appropriation that can emerge in these settings.
J’Ouvert bursts onto the stage and it is the theatre experience I’ve been waiting to get back to. Theatre that can pack a powerful punch and do it while at the same time be entertaining.

Opening Sonia Friedman Productions’ RE:EMERGE season at London’s Harold Pinter Theatre will be Amy Berryman’s Walden (22 May-12 June 2021), followed by Yasmin Joseph’s J’Ouvert (16 Jun-3 Jul) and Joseph Charlton’s Anna X (10 July-4 Aug).
