Afridiziak Theatre News has teamed up with Stratford East and has a pair of tickets to give away to see The Gift by Janice Okoh
A subversive comedy-drama about imperialism, cross-racial adoption, cultural appropriation… and tea.
Brighton, 1862. A day in the life of Sarah, an African girl, adopted by Queen Victoria and raised in the Queen’s circles. Today is the eve of her having to return to Africa but will she go?
The Present. A day in the life of Sarah, a black middle-class woman staying in a Cheshire village with her husband and small child. They are paid a visit by well-meaning neighbours who have something to confess…
The two Sarahs meet Queen Victoria for tea. This won’t be your regular tea party…
Written by Bruntwood Prize-winning playwright Janice Okoh and directed by Dawn Walton, The Gift is the fourth national tour born from Revolution Mix – an Eclipse Theatre movement, spearheading the largest ever delivery of new Black British stories. Find out more | See listing
