In Spring 2022, Utopia Theatre will be touring Oladipo Agboluaje’s wonderful play, Here’s What She Said to Me, across the UK, along with livestreaming, making this the most ambitious tour the company has run to date. This tour has been supported by Arts Council England, house theatre, ArtsReach Rural Touring and Highlights Rural Touring, whose contributions have all supported the ambition of this tour and helped it achieve its scale.

 “If I were like you, I’d have never found a man to marry me. And that right there is a problem.”

Meet Agbeke, Omotola and Aramide, the three generations of proud African women connecting with each other across two continents, across time and space. Together they share their struggles, their joys, tragedies and broken dreams in order to find healing in the present.

Directed by Utopia Theatre founder Mojisola Elufowoju, Here’s What She Said to Me combines drama with music, poetry and movement to tell a moving story of daughters and mothers in the world of migrations and shifting identities, braving life with an undying hope, optimism and resilience.

Beautifully directed by Mojisola Elufowoju, music and movement become metabolised within the story” The Guardian
