Koko Brown is back with her new show Grey, following on from last year’s hit one-woman play White. This instalment of the Colour Trilogy explores depression and black women’s mental health.
Koko Brown and Sapphire Joy women steer this ship in such a brilliant and raw direction that it is only natural that the audience is nodding along and audibly agreeing with them throughout Grey at Ovalhouse Theatre.
The writer Koko Brown chatted to Emma Clarendon about the world premiere of Grey, playing at the Ovalhouse Theatre from 27 June 2019.
So now I’m back in London (filled with my own special brand of Fringe Flu), and all my reviews are done (though I’m still not quite sure how I did it), I thought I should really make sure I rounded up my time at the Fringe and worked out how to do things better next time…
A show about knowing (or not knowing) who you are, with a focus on growing up mixed race – Koko Brown is an engaging & captivating performer.
Are we people of colour? Are we BME? Are we taking the space of those who need it more? Just hearing those thoughts expressed onstage in White at the Vault Festival, in a space I love and cherish, it brings me relief and guilt in equal measure.
