My White Best Friend

The Bunker presents

MY WHITE BEST FRIEND

And Other Letters Left Unsaid

curated by Rachel De-Lahay & Milli Bhatia

Could you put your white best friend on stage and remind them that they’re part of the problem? Even if you love them? Even if you never want anyone to feel for even a moment how you feel living in this world everyday?

Rachel De-Lahay’s provocative act of letter writing engages with racial tensions, microaggressions and emotional labour, asking the privileged to step back and for the rest of the room to take up space. She and director Milli Bhatia have commissioned eleven writers to respond with their own letters that say the unsaid to the people that matter most.

Featuring different letters every night from some of the most exciting voices in the UK, My White Best Friend (and other letters left unsaid) will include work from Bola Agbaje, Zia Ahmed, Travis Alabanza, Fatimah Ashgar, Nathan Bryon, Matilda Ibini, Jammz, Iman Qureshi, Anya Reiss, Nina Segal, Tolani Shoneye.

Performers will read these newly created pieces live onstage each night - without having seen them ahead of time.
There is an Access Pack for this performance, which can be downloaded HERE. For more details on accessibility at The Bunker, please click here. Do contact us at [email protected] if you require any more information, or to let us know of any support we can provide during your visit.
