PYNEAPPLE + Teleportation

THIS IS BLACK

Double Bill 2

A festival of world premiere theatre shows by four, new, exciting Black writers with an accompanying visual art exhibition curated by Sophia Tassew. THIS IS BLACK aims to support, encourage and celebrate Black artists, and to provide a supportive fringe-like experience that existing fringe platforms do not always successfully provide to Black artists.

DJ til late every Friday and Saturday.
PYNEAPPLE BY CHANTELLE ALLE & MELISSA SAINT
directed by Abigail Sewell

(produced by SPYCE collective)

MAYA - Amba Rose Mendy
RAYE - Elise Palmer
ERYCAH - Melissa Saint
LAURYN - Odera Ndujiuba
Young black women grapple with stereotypes in the therapeutic, London-based hair salon, Crowns. But with rent increasing, will their safe space continue to exist? This new, vibrant play explores mental health, sexuality, colourism and femininity as the women share themselves, explore and grow with each other.

TELEPORTATION BY RONKE ADÉKOLUEJO
directed by Steven Kavuma
assistant director Esme Allman
fight choreography by Sam Behan
ANUYIN - Antonia Layiwola
GARY - Lee Ravitz
Gary is alone in his flat and disappearing due to his disability. Anuyin is a carer and ready to work. But this proves to be a challenge she isn’t prepared for: unconventional love, born out of unchosen hate. Can these two polar opposites rediscover how we are all connected to each other, one way or the other? Ronkẹ Adékoluẹjo's debut play explores two bodies sharing a single spirit.
