An exciting couple of months coming up on the Fringe – this month I’m checking out Theatre N16’s new venue for a couple of shows, for one thing, and next month The Bunker Theatre will be a bit of a hotbed for new writing.
What a provocative play and post-show discussion! Are we all racist? How different are racial relations in 21st-century America versus Britain? How do we get more unheard voices onstage? Can white men tell valid stories about minority groups? Should they?
With many moments that hit a powerful punch, Rasheeda Speaking is a powerful and thoughtful piece of drama, designed to make audiences re-evaluate their own attitudes. Well worth paying a visit to the Trafalgar Studios for.
Ahead of the UK premiere this month at the West End’s Trafalgar Studios, Love London Love Culture’s Emma Clarendon catches up with director Jonathan O’Boyle, whose other recent work includes Dear Brutus, Pippin and Hair. Got your tickets yet?
The Rasheeda Speaking cast – three women, one man – are big supporters of Equal Representation for Actresses (ERA 50:50), indeed Elizabeth Berrington is one of the campaign’s co-founders. We love the pics of the company wearing their ERA 50:50 badges with pride – and can’t wait to see how the themes tie in to Joel Drake Johnson’s tense workplace drama. Check out rehearsal photos below – and then get booking!
